CAN Storms Senate To Protest Controversial On School Curriculum

     Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) stormed the Senate on Wednesday, July 12, to protest the controversial introduction of National Values/Civic Education in the Secondary School Scheme of work.

     
The controversial curriculum seeks to make Islamic Religious Knowledge and Christian Religious Knowledge compulsory subjects, irrespective of pupils religious beliefs.
     
     A delegation from CAN, who visited the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, in his office, criticised the new nine-year Basic Education Curriculum as unfair to Christian pupils.

     The leader of the delegation, Prof. Charles Adisa, who represented the National President of CAN, called for the intervention of the National Assembly to ensure genuine respect for the constitution and the “abolition of obnoxious laws that infringe on freedom of worship.”
     
     He alleged that the account of the birth and resurrection of Jesus Christ had been distorted in one of the books in the new curriculum.
Adisa said, “There is a portion in the curriculum that encourages the children to disobey the parents if they are opposed to an issue. When an educational programme encourages rebellion in the home, what will be the implication?”

     He said it was the position of CAN that CRK and IRK should be offered separately, while Social Studies and Civic Education should be merged.

     He also said the federal and state ministries of education should employ more teachers for religious subjects.

     He assured the delegation that the Senate Committee on Basic Education would investigate the complaints of CAN against the new curriculum, with a view to making it acceptable and satisfactory to all religions.
