Group seeks improved anti-corruption content in schools curricula

A group, Youth Health and Social Reforms (YO­HESOR) has canvassed the introduction of im­proved anti-corruption content and life-building skills in the curricula of Nigerian schools.
The group’s National Coordinator, Dr. Ijeoma Arodiogbu, disclosed that YOHESOR is collab­orating with the Federal Ministry of Education and other stakeholders on anti-corruption cam­paign in schools through The Value Project.
In a statement he is­sued on Thursday, Aro­diogbu said that the programme would be hinged on Picture Code, Curriculum Enrichment and Peer Education to drive home the anti-cor­ruption message among students.
According to him: “Through the picture code may not cover all facets of corrupt prac­tices and habits but it would try to capture the very relevant ones that are quite common among students and adults in the school en­vironment and public office respectively were captured.”
He noted that the ad­vocacy on curriculum enrichment is concerned with enhancing the basic and secondary educa­tion sectors to impact highest level of morals and ethics in students to bring the desired social and economic re-engi­neering.
“The YOHESOR-NGO is advocating for curriculum enrichment with adapted life-build­ing skills and anti-cor­ruption education con­tent and subject matter that will ensure skills on the learners,” parts of the statement read.
In view of this, Arodi­ogbu said the NGO said it has reached out to the Nigerian Educational Research Development Council (NERDC) and initiated the dialogue for curriculum enrich­ment towards the anti-corruption education campaign.
