Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has shared his thoughts on the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) to be taught in public schools which has received so much criticism and been met with protest from the general public.
He shared his thoughts during a courtesy call paid him by staff and pupils of ANJEF International School at Ashaiman at his private residence in Accra.
The former president said teaching CSE would rather help the children to learn how to allow nature to mature them
“With the improvement of educational standards, there is no way CSE will impact negatively on school-going children as being asserted by a section of Ghanaians,” he said.
His remarks followed questions posed by some of the pupils regarding his opinion on the subject; he expressed opposition to what he said is the negative perception about CSE.
The subject, he went on, would rather serve as a bulwark against gayism or lesbianism.
Mr. Kufuor said there has been an improvement in the state of education in Ghana but he made a call on the government to continue to put in efforts to improve the economy in order to sustain the quality of education.
He said he was skeptical of the continuous sustainability of the current standard if government failed to improve the economy to create more wealth to support the educational sector.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the school, Abraham Kwasi Afarwuah, informed Mr. Kufuor that the purpose of the visit was to formally seek his blessings for the school and to thank him for his influence in the establishment of the school.
Mr. Afarwuah thanked Mr. Kufuor for accepting them to his residence and the good advice he gave them.
The management and staff of the school presented the former President with a citation and a plaque for his tremendous contribution to the development of Ghana, especially education.
