Ghanaians are up in arms this morning after news came out that a new s*xual education course has been approved for teaching in classrooms.
The new s*x ed course, which would be taught to children as well, has Ghanaians angry that we’re introducing s*xual immorality to children.
In a new post on Facebook, GhanaCelebrities.Com‘s Founding Editor, Chris-Vincent Agyapong reacts to the faux outrage by Ghanaians on social media.
Chris outlined why s*x education is necessary no matter the age bracket.

Ghana—Sex Education of Children and the Hovering Conversation
Ghanaians are morally bankrupt and yet they erect insane arguments on the back of morality against anything new, even if beneficial to their own children or their own good.
Education in Ghana is obsolete, offensively irrelevant and highly non-benefiting to children who want to compete in the global market of the 21st century and beyond.
Any Ghanaian who completed university in Ghana and travelled to Europe or America to study will attest to the fact that they struggled to do basic things, like referencing, writing evaluative essays—and advancing proper arguments. Our education is no education.
We are into chew and pour, and yet we are reluctant to see changes, which ought to start from basic education level.
The intended introduction of sex education in Ghana is causing social media headaches, with people arguing that it’s inappropriate.
I am not sure what’s inappropriate here—and why is it not appropriate? Is it the age at which it will be taught that is inappropriate or the content?
In the UK, sex and relationships education is compulsory for year 7 onwards. People’s sexuality is very important to defining them and their dealings with others—so knowledge about sex and relationships is important, like science or mathematics.
No one can argue, reasonably, that children should not be taught about sex and relationship—it’s done in every civilised society where proper education takes place.
Interestingly, while sex and relationships education is compulsory in the UK, schools have to teach Religious Education too, “but parents can withdraw their children for all or part of [Religious education] lessons. Pupils can choose to withdraw themselves once they’re 18.”
What does the above tell you?
Ghanaians will not have a problem with their children, of any age, being taught about religion but will have a problem with children of appropriate age, being taught about sex and relationships.
Why do you think we have a shocking rape culture in Africa? Because, no one really teaches anyone about sex and relationship, properly.
