The Ghana Education Service (GES) says the introduction of the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) into the basic school curriculum will not undermine Ghanaian cultural norms.
The GES in a statement said it was surprised at the “wild speculations and claims” on the matter of the inclusion of the CSE into the basic school curriculum.
Some of the speculation centred around fears on sensitisation on sexuality and LGBTQ ideas.
GES however maintains that the new curriculum being implemented “has nothing to do with LGBT issues, masturbation or explicit display/labelling of intimate body parts.

“The GES is a state agency and will not under any circumstances implement any programme wich goes contrary to the legal, cultural norms, values and believes of the Ghanaian people.”
The GES explained that the member states of the United Nations are mandated to roll out CSE in accordance “with their cultural norms and values.”
“It is, therefore, wrong to insist that CSE as practised in Europe or North America has the same structures and content as is being rolled out in Ghana.”
