51 Children Pregnant In Krachi West District- GNAT

One of Ghana’s vibrant teacher associations, Ghana National Association of Teachers, GNAT says 51 children got pregnant between the months of March and May last year in just one district.

This unfortunate situation, according to GNAT, is because of COVID-19. COVID because it forced all schools to close down paving way for students to misconduct themselves.

This information circulating through GNAT and various media platforms is supported by the World Vision International, which identified that the Krachi West District recorded 51 teenage pregnancies during the lockdown.

Schools reopen on Monday, 18th January, 2020 after President Akufo Addo directed all schools to resume academic work.

GNAT opined that many children have gone into child labour during the COVID-19 break.

Recommendations made to the District Directors of Education include;
1. to listen to the views expressed by the teachers.
2. Not to blame teachers because pupils might not observe safety protocols and may contract the virus.
