The Ghana Education Service (GES) has rejected claims that it has approved a new syllabus for Senior High Schools in the country.

Images of a purported Social Studies text book have gone viral on social media following inscriptions on it which suggests that it was from a new SHS syllabus and recommended by the GES and the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC).

The textbook, written by one Emmanuel Asare Donkor comes as the second edition of the Golden Social Studies for Senior High Schools.

Page 169 of the book outlines five new types of family systems, in addition to the traditional nuclear and extended family systems which was previously taught in the existing syllabus, with one of the five being the same-sex family system.

Some Ghanaians have raised concerns over the content of the said textbook.

Chairman of the Ghana Education Service Council, Michael Nsowah, in an interview with an Accra based radio station expressed surprise at the said book saying GES has not issued out any new syllabus of a sort.
