The Leadership of theGESand the Ministry of Education keep telling one big lie to cover up another lie.
They are looking like people the public is finding it difficult to trust. Their previous pronouncements onCSEcaptured in the budget of Ghana and their own publicpronouncementsall pointtothe fact thatthey aredeceivingus all through.
Today, almost everyone whoseumbilicalcord is connected to therulingNPPis defending this evil called Comprehensive Sexuality Education whichsomewesterncountrieslike Canada withadvancededucational systems have rejected.
Ghana loves embracing the garbage others reject in the name ofmodernity.
A prolific writer and human rights activist ChristianaAfuaNyarkohas added her voice to the call byreligiousleaders andwell-meaning Ghanaians on the attempt to sneak in CSE into Ghana from KG. She writes …
Despite the massive uproar on the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) curriculum, the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service, via media confabs and series of media interviews and publications, debunked negative perceptions of forcing LGBTQ ideology, ‘free sex’ experiments, usage of condoms, etc. on children.
The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) has further stated that they would notforwarda curriculum that will endanger our value systems and that the said curriculum iscurrentlyunder review and that it has not been approved.
In my opinion, I think it is a good thing to debunk ‘lies’ about the curriculum, thus calming down nerves.
Nonetheless, as a concerned citizen, I want to believe that what theGES, Ministry of Education and the National Council for Curriculum Assessment said is nothing but the truth.
I want to believe that what these educational stakeholders are saying is what they are going to do exactly but, not a covert operation to leak those diabolical ideas into our educational system. I also hope it is not a blind oran attempt tothrow dust into eyes.
My message to them is to let their ‘yes be yes’ and their ‘no be truly no’. What is good for the goosemight not benecessarily good for the gander.
Parents, concerned teachers, religious bodies and all who care about our dear children’s future: I say to you, do not let down your guard.Be vigilantas a serpent as the Bible says.
I rest my case.
