STILL : GHANA WILL EVENTUALLY ADOPT COMPREHENSIVE SEXUALITY EDUCATION (CSE), BUT IT WILL BE CULTURALLY SENSITIVE – EDUCATION MINISTER AGAIN





The Minister during his press briefing yesterday said that the National Council for Curriculum Assesment (NCCA) which is the body that looks at documents have not submitted any such curriculum to the Ministry of Education for approval.


The Comprehensive Sexual Education programme is expected to equip pupils to know and experience their sexuality.

If the CSE is implemented, at age six, Primary one pupils will be introduced to values and societal norms and how to interact with the different sexes and groups.

He clarified that even though in February this year he joined UNESCO to launch a programme, it was on general sex education and not a Comprehensive Sexual Education programme subject being adopted by his Ministry.

Cultural Sensitivity

Cultural sensitivity is being aware that cultural differences and similarities between people exist without assigning them a value – positive or negative, better or worse, right or wrong.

It simply means that you are aware that people are not all the same and that you recognize that your culture is no better than any other culture. A challenge, if you ask me, for members of dominant cultures.
