– NERDC speaks on CRK removal from school curriculum
In a statement released on Tuesday, the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC) denied that Christian Religious Knowledge (CRK), has been removed from schools’ curriculum.
NERDC maintained that the subject was never removed and also insisted that they did not introduce the Islamic Arabic Studies/French combination, as being rumoured in some quarters.
“For the avoidance of doubt, the last review of the curriculum was approved in 2013 and implementation commenced in September 2014.
“In both instances, neither the Christian Religious Knowledge nor Islamic Studies was removed from the curriculum.
“In this Curriculum, no child should be coerced or compelled to learn or be taught in school any religious studies not relating to the belief system professed by the child and his/her parents.
“CRK is still taught in schools; as a separate distinct subject with the accompanying Teachers’ Guide. There is no subject in the Nigerian School Curriculum called Islamic Arabic Studies nor anywhere in the world as being speculated,” Junaidu said.
