Dokora continues to defend himself, says Islam has always been part of the curriculum

On Monday Primary and Secondary Education Minister Lazarus Dokora criticised claims that he is introducing Islam in the education curriculum. He said that Islam has always been part of content just like other major religions.

Dokora said:

In 1980 the curriculum that we fashioned to the republic included Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity, Buddhism and I was just a classroom teacher then, and those were introduced at Grade Two (2).

If you went to school soon after independence you probably went through the experience of learning these things.

What has been misleading in the media was that the minister has brought in the curriculum Islam as if that is a new thing. It has been always in the content.

The Minister has been getting a lot of criticism for the way the new education curriculum was implemented.

The President also reassured the nation that Dokora was not introducing Isma through in the new education curriculum.
