The Edo State Wing of the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT) and the Association of Primary School Heads of Nigeria (AOPSHON) are demanding a review of the education curriculum in Edo.
The two bodies made the demand in a communiqué jointly signed by the state’s Chairman of the NUT, Mr Pius Okhuelegbe and his counterpart in AOPSHON, Mr Mike Itua, on Friday in Benin.
The communiqué was issued after the executive committee meeting of the two bodies on Sept. 13.
The unions said that the state’s education curriculum tagged, Edo-Best for Primary Education, was at variance with Nigeria’s basic education curriculum.
The communiqué advised the Edo State Universal Education Board to do all it could to ensure that the content of Edo-Best was in tandem with the national curriculum.
