CRK not removed from secondary school curriculum - FG

At last, the Federal Ministry of Education has refuted reports making a round that Christian Religious Knowledge (CRK), has was removed as a subject of study from the curriculum of public secondary schools across Nigeria, reports ITRealms.

The reports also alleged that the Ministry reintroduced Islamic Religious Studies (IRS) against CRK.

Director, Press at the Federal Ministry of Education, Mrs. Chinenye Ihuoma, explained to ITRealms that the ministry designed a new subject which combined Civic Education, IRS, CRK and Social Studies into “Religion and National Values.”

Equally, Ihuoma told ITRealms in a press statement made available to correspondent that the alternation was not from the minister, but precisely from the National Council on Education (NCE).

“It is just as the council has said that History should be a subject of its own at the basic level in the first nine years. Now, a new subject has been introduced, called Religion and National Values. It is a fusion of religion and civics” she said.

Although Ihuoma confirmed she was yet to see the details, but noted that in a case where students have subject combinations at the same time, “everyone will attend lectures that correspond with their own religion.”

“Arabic and Islamic Studies are not standing alone. Islamic Religious Study and Christian Religious Study as well as national values will be taught under a new subject,” she insisted.
