A female primary school teacher has introduced her pupils to the dreaded Comprehensive Sexuality Education.
Comprehensive Sexuality Education is being introduced into Ghana’s education system for Primary children beginning from four years. According to the Ghana Education Service, this program will equip these kids with information on their sexuality and some reproductive health issues.
However, many Ghanaians including parents and Christian groups have kicked against its introduction. Many have cited varied reasons as to why they don’t think it will help the welfare of our kids aged 4. To some, it’s alien to our culture and others to think it will only give the children the license to go ahead and engage in sexual activities; when we are already battling with teenage pregnancy issues.
