Primary School Curriculum Reform in the Western State of Nigeria. IIEP Occasional Papers No. 34.
Ogunyemi, Michael Ade
The need for change in the primary school curriculum in the Western State of Nigeria has been felt for some time, and efforts at curriculum reform have already been made. This paper examines some of these efforts with a view to identifying their merits and defects, especially in the absence of a permanent structure for curriculum development activities. The paper also suggests guidelines for future curriculum development processes, including proposals for the establishment of curriculum development centers in the country. The structure, organization, and functioning of these centers, as well as their financial implications, are examined. (Author)
