Education Minister, Matthew Opoku Prempeh has dispelled
suggestions that government was ignoring the cultural and moral values of its
citizens by creating policies that will introduce foreign cultures through the
Comprehensive Sexual Education (CSE) to be taught in schools.
According to him, the syllabus approved by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) for KG to primary 6 does not include Comprehensive Sexual Education.
There has been massive public castigation from several sections of Ghanaians about the introduction of the CSE, with majority of the population speaking against its implementation.
Some have expressed fears about a subtle agenda through the syllabus to promote Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) plan.
However, addressing the media on the issue, Dr. Opoku Prempeh stated that the teachers trained for the new curriculum were not trained nor given resource packs for the teaching of CSE as part of the new school curriculum.
