The Proprietress of Al-Haleem International Schools, Surulere, Lagos, Mrs. Rakia Tukur, has opined that there is nothing wrong with the current Nigerian school syllabus.
The Proprietress disclosed this during a courtesy visit to The Guardian, Rutam House head office alongside students of the school to learn about the different stages of and processes of newspaper production.
“We are here on educational tour so that our students can know about the media work while those interested in becoming journalists would see what it entails and the things involved.
“I am very impressed by what I saw. I am happy I came with them. I’ve never been to any newpaper publication firm before so, I decided to be part of this visit and see what is being done to get more knowledge. We also believe The Guardian is the best,” Tukur stated.
Talking about the Nigerian school syllabus, the proprietress had this to say, “The syllabus is quite okay since it was done by seasoned educationists that really know what is right for the primary and secondary school levels.
“I believe we can consider adding a few things to the syllabus to meet the global standard. I believe it was a right decision to re-introduce History to the school syllabus years after it was stopped; we enjoyed history while we were in school and we are happy to have it back.”
