Though others have complained about this move, the Ghanaian singer, during an interview with Selorm Tali for pulse.com.gh, said that the kids are already having sex, therefore, it’s important to teach them about it.
However, the mother of one, who is out with a new song "Yes I Do", says it must be done carefully, so, in the long run, it doesn’t rather encourage the kids to go and have sex.
Becca says she has ever embarked on a menstrual hygiene project and from her experience, the pupils really need sex education. Becca says if she’s contacted to help raise awareness about this programme, she will be available if for the betterment of the children.
The Ghana Education Service (GES) will, from next term, introduce sex education into the curriculum of basic schools to equip pupils to know and experience their sexuality.
At age six, Primary One pupils will be introduced to values and societal norms and how to interact with the different sexes and groups.
As the pupils graduate to the upper primary, they will be made to study different modules of sexuality that include relationship, friendship, dating and courtship.
The guideline module for 11-year-olds in Primary Six includes fertility, pregnancy-related issues, childbirth and respecting gender differences.
This is part of the Guidelines for the Comprehensive Sexuality Education (CSE) that is expected to integrate gender, human values and sexual and reproductive health rights perspectives into sexuality education in Ghana. [credit:pulse.com,gh]
