In the heart of our newly democratic Yoruba Republic, we have come to understand the need to clear off the lies taught and believed in about who we truly are. The path we choose now will shape our future, and the future of generations to come. One such decision lies in the realm of education, specifically the teaching of History in our schools.

The Importance of History in Schools

History is not just a subject; it’s a chronicle of our past, a mirror reflecting our cultural, political, and social evolution. It provides context for our present situation and guidance for our future actions. By studying history, students gain a deeper understanding of their roots, fostering a strong sense of identity and belonging.

Teaching history in schools allows our children to learn about the great leaders, thinkers, and events that have shaped the Yoruba people. It instills in them the values of courage, resilience, and wisdom that our ancestors embodied. It also teaches them about the mistakes of the past, helping them to avoid repeating them.

The Consequences of Removing History from the Curriculum

The removal of history from the curriculum would be a disservice to our children and a threat to our cultural preservation. Without a firm grasp of our past, our children might grow up without a clear sense of identity. They might lose touch with the values, norms, and traditions that define us as Yoruba people.

Moreover, history teaches critical thinking, a skill that is vital in today’s world. It encourages students to question, analyze, and interpret events, fostering a generation of informed citizens capable of making wise decisions.

Upholding Our True Values: The Role of the Ministry of Education

The Ministry of Education recognizes the importance of history in preserving our cultural heritage. It is committed to ensuring that history remains a core subject in our schools. The Ministry is working tirelessly to develop a comprehensive and engaging history curriculum that reflects our rich Yoruba heritage.

The Ministry is also dedicated to training teachers who can bring history to life in the classroom, sparking curiosity and a love for learning in our students. It is our belief that by investing in history education, we are investing in the future of the Yoruba Republic.
