Education Minister Removes C.R.K, IRS From National Curriculum! by Beemhan(m): 3:46pm On May 08, 2016
From henceforth, the CRS and IRS you used
to know in Nigerian secondary schools
curriculum will now be regarded as Religion
and National Values (RNV). Details below.
Latest news from the Federal Ministry of
Education in Abuja has ordered an immediate
removal of Christian Religious Knowledge/
Studies (C.R.K/C.R.S) and the Islamic
Religious Knowledge (I.R.K) from the
Nigerian Primary and Secondary School
Curriculum.
In their argument, the Minister believes the
changes will help cut down the number
of subjects offered in our schools from 20 to
a maximum of ten subjects under the nine-
year basic educational curriculum in order to
align with International standards.amended the scheme by letting subjects
like Christian Religious Studies (CRS) and
Islamic Religious Studies (IRS), which are
separately taught, to be merged under a
compulsory subject known as Religion and
National Values (RNV) . Other subjects
brought under the RNV include Civic
Education, Social Studies, and Security
Education.
Meanwhile several reactions trail the removal
and merging of the subjects from Nigerians
who think the move is unnecessary, needless
and uncalled for. What’s your take on this?https://www.students.com.ng/education-minister-removes-c-r-k-irs-from-national-curriculum/

How can a core notherner who has little knowledge about christianity teach both CRK and IRK and the same thing apply to an Igbo man. I strongly recommend that History should be include in the new curriculum instead of all this merging.

Nigeria and misplaced priorities. aligh with "international standard" abi ki le n wi? the minister should be more concern abt pupils studying under d tree,govt schools without teachers, schools without tables and chairs, books and other amenities according to d "international standard ". merging subjects without upgrading their teachers should be one of d least worries of d minister abeg.
