Teenage Pregnancy has become a great canker to be worried about,especially,amongst school going pupils .
This situation has led to numerous school dropouts In Ghanaian Basic and Senior high schools .Most at times ,the girl child is the one affected most .The GHANA Education service and teachers have done a lot to curb this situation ,but it looks like the situation is rather escalating .
Teenage Pregnancy in Basic schools is still galloping .In a survey conducted by GES ,It stated that
“A total of 7,293 teenage pregnancies were recorded in basic and second cycle schools in the 2018/2019 academic year across the country, the National Director of the Girls Education Unit at the Ghana Education Service (GES) has revealed.”
