Minority Breaks Silence On Controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education Today

The Minority National Democratic Congress (NDC) Caucus in Parliament will hold a press conference today, Friday, October 4, 2019, on the controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) implementation.

The Government has clarified that the approved curriculum framework for basic schools does not include Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE).

Addressing the media in Accra, the Education Minister, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, noted that “no teacher was trained on Comprehensive Sexuality Education.”

“The curriculum framework from KG to P6 that has been approved by Cabinet from the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment for use in the development of school curriculum and published on NACA website does not include anything on Comprehensive Sexuality Education.”

Meanwhile, Education Ministry has said the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) begun a process to introduce the controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) into the curriculum of public basic schools.

The Spokesperson for the Ministry, Vincent Assafuah, said Wednesday, that members of the opposition party who are joining the public condemnation of government over the CSE brouhaha, are hypocrites.

“I want to bring out the hypocrisy of Sam George [Ningo-Prampram legislator for the NDC] and his colleagues who are [claiming] that the Comprehensive Sexuality Education that they are making so much noise about…it is something that in 2015 they...introduced,” Vincent Assafuah stated.
