Ministry of Education Set to Merge Christian and Islamic Studies in All Nigerian Schools


In a bid to reduce the workload of primary and junior secondary pupils from 20 to a maximum of ten subjects under the nine-year basic educational curriculum and in order to align with International standards, the Federal Ministry of Education in conjunction with the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC), has introduced a new scheme/merger.
 
Under this scheme which was developed by the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC), Christian and Islamic Religious Studies, which are separately taught, will now 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.
