President of policy think tank, IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe, has supported calls for the introduction of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) by the Ghana Education Service.
Although the subject at hand has received a lot of backlash from Ghanaians, the IMANI Africa President thinks otherwise, as he believes that is the right approach for kids to know more about their sexuality.
According to him, he sees no wrong with the introduction of CSE in the new curricula, more so, because kids of this generation are now exposed to a lot of things and are abreast with a lot of information, so would be appropriate if they are taught what they already know.
Stating his stance on his Twitter handle, Franklin Cudjoe said “There is nothing wrong with teaching kids about sexual orientations. In today’s world, they know much.”
The Comprehensive Sexuality Education (GSE) will be introduced into Ghana’s basic schools’ curriculum next year, 2020.
The overall objective of the CSE programme is to equip pupils to know and experience their sexuality.
However, there has been massive public outcry against the sex education programme with Ghanaians calling for its withdrawal.
