Removing RME from Basic School Syllabus is a “Big Disaster”

The National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NCCA) has made a proposal for reforms in the Basic School curriculum starting 2019/2020 academic year. This proposal, when fully implemented, will see Religious and Moral Education (RME) removed from the syllabus.

The new subjects under the reform are;
Literacy
Mathematics
Science
History
Geography
Our World & Our People
Basic Design and Technology
Computing

This reform has raised concerns among a section of the public especially stakeholders.

Educationist Daniel Fenyi, a renowned Ghanaian counsellor who has carefully studied the proposal for the reforms, has indicated that removing Religious Moral Education (RME) from the syllabus spells “disaster” for the future.

Mr. Daniel Fenyi said that considering the high level of indiscipline, corruption and moral decadence exhibited by both the leaders and youths of this country, a study of RME is very crucial.

Counsellor Daniel Fenyi emphasised that an academic system that can produce doctors, lawyers, politicians, teachers, accountants and engineers who have no basic moral training in RME is a “wasteful” academic system.
