Teenage Pregnancy1 A report has it that over 300 students were impregnated by teachers in the Central Region

The Central Regional branch of the Ghana National Association of Teachers(GNAT) has challenged a report claiming teachers have impregnated over 300 girls in the region.

The report which was published by the Department of Social Welfare as part of a campaign to reduce teenage pregnancy cases in the region, however, GNAT has said its investigation revealed that only six of the girls were impregnated by teachers.

The Central Regional Secretary of GNAT, Boadu Abaidoo William in an interview said the erroneous report has tarnished the reputation of teachers.

“It lacks certain level of scientific analysis to that effect. Last year when they raised this issue we also went back and did some analysis and it came out that out of 394 girls who got pregnant, 5 teachers were involved, One was a yogurt seller and they call him teacher because he was teaching that girl in the evening so the household call him teacher and because you can’t identify who’s a professional teacher and a national service person and the rest. As a professional body there are regulations regulating our work, that is the condition service and code of conduct, this act is against the laws of this country and it’s criminal.”

Meanwhile the Regional Education Directorate has formed a committee to investigate claims by female SHS students that they’re being harassed by their teachers for sex in exchange for grades and monies.

Female students of senior high schools within the Assin area in the Central Region have made damning allegations against their male teachers, claiming they are being sexually harassed by their teachers in exchange for grades and money.

According to the students, the teachers mostly coerce them into having sexual relationship with them in exchange for favours such as good grades in their end of term exams and money.

They claim female students who fail to give in to the demands of the male teachers are usually abused, hated, sacked from class and or failed in examinations.

At the climax of this year’s 16 days of activism against gender-based violence at Assin Anode, the students expressed disappointment in the male teachers who are engaged in such immoral and unethical behaviour.

The students are from Assin Manso SHS, Nyankomasi SHS, Obiri Yeboah SHS, Assin State College, and Assin North Community Day School.
