The National President of Parent Teacher Associations (PTAs), Alexander Yaw Danso has said that it is never true that the teaching of sexual education at the lower primary level is not in the new curriculum.
According to him, the National Council of PTAs has ample evidence to indicate that Comprehensive Sexual Education (CSE) will be taught at the primary level.
“The controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) is not forged because it is in the books…,” he claimed on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen as monitored by Angelfmonlinegh.com.
Yaw Danso claimed that he has sighted the contents of CSE in the new curriculum and would have been taught in primary schools if the public had not raised serious issues about that.
“The controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) is in page 11 of the new manual…there are more questions than answers on this…,” he claimed on the show.
Yaw Danso further added that his association is joining the tall list of other bodies to condemn and demand the immediate withdrawal of the portion of the new curriculum dictating the teaching of CSE in schools.
“We are dissatisfied with explanations of the Education Minister on Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) controversy…there are more questions than answers on this controversial Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE). The ministry must come again…,” he demanded.
The National Council of PTAs joins a tall list of bodies and eminent individuals condemning the introduction of CSE into schools in the country.
Notable bodies that have kicked against the introduction of the CSE in schools include the Charismatic Bishops Conference and the office of the National Chef Imam. The Charismatic Bishops Conference described CSE as something which is against the cultural norms and values held in high esteem in the country while the Office of the National Chief Imam described it ‘satanic’ and something which is against the teachings of Islam.
