School Kids From 4 Years Old Will Be Taught Sexuality In Ghana

Beginning next year, pupils in all public schools, including 4-year-olds will be given Comprehensive Sexuality Education.

Officials say the subject content would, however, be age-appropriate, so the toddlers would be empowered with values that would protect them from sexual harassment.

The programme has however come under intense criticism.

Law lecturer and fierce critic of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) movement, Moses Foh-Amoaning, has slammed the introduction of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) in Ghanaian public schools.

Mr Foh-Amoaning, who is also the Executive Secretary and the Spokesperson for the National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values said some texts and modules in the curriculum that will guide the CSE programme in Ghana resonate with LGBT activism.

“I feel a bit of pity for…the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service [Prof Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa] even the Ministry [of Education] and a lot of other Ghanaians who have been made a part of this clear LGBT agenda,” Mr Foh-Amoaning said Friday, on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM.

He believes there is an active strategy by the LGBT movement to get acceptance – especially in Africa, where resistance has been most strong.

“[The strategy] is always not open for you to see, it is very subliminal and they come in all sorts of ways…they have noticed that in Africa, our culture and our religion, we are very strong…so they are going through education. Education is strong because if you win the mind then you can win the heart,” he said.

The Ministry of Education and its partners deny these assertions.

Introduction to the Comprehensive Sexuality Education Guidelines leaves readers in no doubt about the purposes of the programme.

Among other things, students are expected to “acquire accurate information on sexual rights and reproductive health.”

That is not all.

It will also help students “nurture positive attitudes and values including open-mindedness, respect for self and others, positive self-worth /esteem, comfort, none judgemental attitudes, sense of responsibility concerning their sexual and reproductive health.
