Don calls for review of basic school curriculum

Prof. Sat Obiyan of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, has urged the Minister of Education to setup a committee to determine the suitability of the present basic school curriculum.

Obiyan, Head of Political Department, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Thursday that the curriculum and number of subjects at the secondary school level were chaotic.

He said the course content, subjects and the curriculum at the secondary school were not suitable for students.

He said efforts should be made to ensure that basic education was restructured and simplified during their tenure.

Obiyan said there was serious problem in the primary and secondary school education.

“Education is not only about tertiary education, it is all encompassing; we need to focus on the foundation, which has been neglected.

“We want the new minister to look at the issue of course content, subjects and curriculum at the secondary school level.

“I will describe the situation with regard to the curriculum and number of subjects at the secondary level as extremely chaotic.

“There is a need to setup a proper committee to determine the suitability of the present curriculum and what should be done to correct it,’’ he said.
