FG Adds History Study, Direct Schools On Immediate Implementation
“It is with immediate implementation. So, definitely for the next academic year everybody will fall in line because we already articulated the curriculum.
The Federal Government of Nigeria directs all basic and secondary schools across the country to immediately implement the teaching of history as a standalone subject starting from next academic calendar.
The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Mr Sonny Echono, revealed this on Friday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
It would be recalled that the Federal Government on June 18 promised the return history to school curriculum while ensuring that all primary school teachers are trained to deliver digital literacy.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has declared at the launch of Education for Justice Programme that government had kick-started implementation in 12 primary and secondary schools across the six geo-political zones and instructional classes have also commenced.
According to Echono, the directive has already been given and it is automatic that all the schools should implement simultaneously.
In his words: “By the next academic calendar, history will be taught as a standalone subject.
“It is with immediate implementation. So, definitely for the next academic year everybody will fall in line because we already articulated the curriculum and the examination should be done along those lines,” he said.
