Female students of some Senior High Schools within the Assin area in the Central Region have alleged that some of the male teachers demand sex from them in exchange for grades and money.

Speaking to Accra-based Starr FM, the female students said their colleagues who do not give in to such demands are usually abused, hated, sacked from class and or failed in examinations.

A student said the teachers mount too much pressure on them.

“They worry us too much especially those of us in the boarding house. They tell you they will give you money and good grades and if you don’t agree to the proposal they sometimes can sack you from the class or even fail you in exams.”

“And sometimes because some of our parents are illiterate, they are unable to understand some of the demands we make so they can provide for us. So we easily fall prey to the advances our teachers,” another added.

The Female students made these revelations at the climax of this year’s 16 days of activism against gender-based violence at Assin Anode.

Most of 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.

The Regent of Assin Ando, Nana Kweku Antwi, confirmed there have been several sexual harassment cases by the teachers in the area.

However, he said he will partially blame the parents of the girls since some have failed in raising their children well.

Meanwhile, the Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Otiko Afisa Djaba, reminded the gathering that it is a crime to sexually harass your student.

She observed that Ghana frowns on all forms of abuses, and stressed on the need to end teenage pregnancy, child prostitution, defilement, rape, child marriage and human trafficking as the country progresses as a nation.
