The Lagos State Government has directed heads of private schools in the state that the teaching of History as a stand-alone subject has been re-introduced to schools.

This was disclosed on Saturday, in a memo addressed to owners and heads of private schools by the Director of Research at the Office of Education Quality Assurance of the Lagos State Ministry of Education, Mrs Esther Pelumi.

The memo, which was made available to the Freedom Post, noted that while history as a subject was compulsory for both primary and secondary school classes, it is an elective subject in the senior secondary school.

It read in part, “I have the directive of the Director General (QEQA) to inform you that the teaching of History as a stand-alone subject is back to schools.

“In line with the directive from the Nigerian Education Research and Development Council, the subject has been re-introduced in the national curriculum and in the current Lagos State Unified Schemes  of Work for primary and junior secondary schools.

“You are to note that while the subject (History) is compulsory for both primary and junior secondary school classes, it is an elective subject in the senior secondary school.

“To this end, I am further directed to inform you that the subject should be taught in primaries one and two and JSS one and two classes in the 2022/2023 academic session.”
