Student Teachers' Perception on Integration of Traditional Circumcision Education into the School Curriculum
Seloana, S. M.
South African Journal of Higher Education, v25 n8 p1608-1625 2011
The purpose of this article is to report on the research findings of the views of student-teachers on the integration of some aspects of a traditional circumcision curriculum into higher education. The main question is: Could a traditional circumcision curriculum be integrated into the higher education curriculum? Seventy five participants were sampled through a systematic random sampling strategy from a population of 120 male student teachers. The sample includes only those who have attended a circumcision school. Data were collected through a closed questionnaire, and presented as percentages. The preliminary results reveal that the majority of student-teachers are in favour of the integration of a circumcision curriculum into the higher education curriculum. These results may serve as a siren to alert us of the need to create space in the higher education system for the indigenous knowledge system (IKS), for example, the circumcision values and knowledge.
