Having identified issues of aging educational scheme, Delta State Government yesterday began curriculum revision and development of schemes for Primary and Junior Secondary School.
Speaking yesterday in Asaba, Delta State Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Olorogun David Edevbie said review exercise was important to improve learning so as to drive societal development.
According to him, “Eight years after the first curriculum revision in Delta, it is imperative to carry out another curriculum changing exercise to meet the needs of the changing world”.
He also noted need for involving critical education stakeholders in the process, saying that the process stands to benefit the society.
“In education, children should be able to possess life changing and leadership skills to thrive in life”, he asserted.
While emphasizing on the need for quality education, Commissioner of Basic and Secondary Education, Chief Patrick Ukah lamented the effect on societal decadence on education.
“For instance, a society that is failing cannot be expected to provide qualitative education system. A society that is decadence and replete with corrupt and inept practices cannot support a good education due to system deficiencies and failure”, he purported.
He reiterated need for the constant review of curriculum content to keep lace with global trends.
