Teacher impregnates three girls in same class at KEEA District

Teacher impregnates three girls

Teacher impregnates three girls in the same class is the latest odd news in the education sector. Three girls who are pupils in the same school and class are reported to have been put in the family way by their teacher. This happened in the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem (KEEA) Municipality in the Central region.

The said teacher in impregnated three girls in the same class, according to a lecturer with the University of Cape Coast Counselling Centre, Dr Kyeremeh Tawiah Dabone.

He added that the situation is threatening the future prospects of the young girls in the municipality.

To ensure the teacher is disciplined by the GES a formal complaint has been lodged against the teacher and the appropriate sanctions must be applied against him.

Dr Kyeremeh Tawiah Dabone disclosed this at a seminar organized by the Ghana Education Service’ Counselling and Guidance Centre at Kwadaso in the Ashanti region. The training aimed at equipping school-based counsellors on the need for the counsellors to offer psychosocial support to school kids.

Seven other girls have also been impregnated by their close relatives in the municipality. The situation according to the GES will have a serious physiological effect on the girls when schools resume full operations.

Dr Kyeremeh said the COVID-19 restrictions exposed the children to all forms of abuse which are unusual and has led to psychological effects among the children.

Mr Stephen Asare Brew, the Kwadaso Municipal Educational Coordinator of the Counsellor and Guidance unit of GES, also stated that these abuses have affected the children physiologically leading to suicide among some of them.

Leaners who suffer sexual abuse and are exposed to some of these abuses suffer psychologically just as the three girls. Girls in our schools need immediate counselling to rescue them from this unfortunate situation and teachers who lure them into such situations.

The code of conduct for teachers is clear on sexual abuse by teachers. The act is against the code of ethics of GES.  GES is committed to punishing any teacher who is involved in the act. It is however sad that many students who are victims of teacher-student sexual abuse fail to report to the proper authorities making it difficult to issue sanctions to the teachers.

  1. I have been advocating for teaching these girls to take care of themselves. This rule about cutting our hair makes us feel less beautiful and it messes with our self-esteem and confidence! It is promoting timidity and self-doubt! This teacher took advantage of this low self-esteem and started to sleep with girls. How do we even know that it wasn’t rape? Investigations anyone? We Ghanaian children are not nurtured to be confident and open-minded.
    This kills our curiosity and does not drive any innovation.

    WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME A CHILD IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN GHANA CAME UP WITH AN INNOVATION?

    We need to change this rule of destroying the self-esteem of our young women and empower them to be confident and know their worth.
    The reason we have been given that having hair makes you look older doesn’t hold where men (who have bad intentions) are concerned! Also, why should the woman/girl be the one to always be controlled in such situations?
    We have to dress properly, learn to cook, talk properly, cut our hair forcibly so that we do not entice men! But is it working?
    GHANA EDUCATION SERVICE, I know there are bigger problems like your benefits, working conditions, classrooms, etc. But you are killing our self esteem! Please! Let us have a nationwide discussion on this rule! These young women need their self-esteem protected!
