Synopsis on Islamic Schools, the Ulama, and the State in the Educational Development of Northern Nigeria The past Problems of Islamic Schools, the Ulama, and the State in the Educational Development of Northern Nigeria: Islamic schools in Nigeria had undergone transformations i.e. pre-colonial era, the colonial era and the post-colonial era. Struggled for survival as they encountered missionary and colonial incursions. Position of monopolistic control over spiritual knowledge to one of competition today
How did Islam come in to Nigeria? Islam first entered West Africa through trans-Saharan Trade in the 9 th /10 th century. It spread among the rulers and the urban population and then gradually into the rural areas. Scholars established Qur’anic schools and for many centuries up to the colonial period, Islamic schooling was the formal educational system in Northern Nigeria. The north was solidly Muslim apart from pockets of African traditional religion in the remote or mountainous areas. Islam also spread faster in the south, during colonial period particularly into Yoruba-land down to Lagos and the sea.
Northern Nigeria, where Islamic schools are prevalent, has endured a long list of developmental challenges including the following: ‘’documented British colonial Policy.’’ 1)A low level of educational attainment in its relationship with Southern Nigeria because of ‘’documented British colonial Policy.’’ 2)A reform of Islamic schools is vital to long period of isolation 3)Weak position of Nigeria’s educational bureaucracy made operational framework difficult. 4)A programme of mass education, the Universal Basic Education (UBE), launched in September 1999 did not favour Islam.
developmental challenges (contd): 5) North-East and North-West zones referred to as the ‘core north’, over 50% of the children do not attend school 6) The colonial state structures by missionaries and colonialists threatened an established social order of Islam. 7) Three variants of Islamic schools : a)Islamiyya, b)Madrassa and c)Traditional Qur’anic Schools
Conclusion 2009: The Nigeria School Curriculum Review: Alienating Arabic and Muslim Students (Public Schools) (Public Schools) Educational system in Nigeria has come under series of attacks from various angles either from academics and non-academics as well. These criticisms give ways to different reforms right from Pre- independence to Post-Colonial era, notably, Universal Primary Education (U.P.E) to 220.127.116.11 under both the military rulers of Obasanjo and Babangida respectively.
Most reforms in the history of Nigeria were either partly implemented or not implemented at all. With the failure of president Obasanjo to reform education sector, the Federal Government of Nigeria launched a new curriculum known as New Basic Education Curriculum for primary and junior secondary schools in 2007.
The executive secretary of Nigerian Education Research and Development Council (NERDC), Professor Godswill Obioma said “the new curriculum seeks to correct the abnormalities of the former one which was lacking in the areas of human capacity development, eradication of poverty, and the country’s quest for total emancipation as an independent entity”. The new curriculum was effective from 2009/2010 academic session.
The born of contention is the way and manner the new curriculum will alienate Muslim students completely from the scheme of things and rendered Arabic teachers less important from our schools?
In the old curriculum before 2007, you either choose French as elective subject or Arabic for which both are languages. With the new system in place, French for whom historically we have no any cultural ties whatsoever in any form or shape is now elevated to the same status as English and mathematics in our education system. Now Arabic cannot enjoy the same status as its French, where does it stand since there is no language partner?
The big question is, who is at the receiving end? Certainly from the look of things Muslim students and poor Arabic teachers are. In the history of Nigeria that’s Arabic and rendering Arabic teachers and anything associated with Arabic less important thereby facing lay-off.
Muslim students and Arabic teachers are in dilemma; tactically used to frustrate Islam. Remember Nigeria Defence Academy(NDA) where Arabic department is now history, Arabic inscription in our naira notes is gradually being phased out; and now our educational sector is about to suffer the same fate?
2014 Nigeria revises basic education curriculum The Nigerian Education Research and Development Council, NERDC, revised nine-year Basic Education Curriculum, BEC. The Executive Secretary, NERDC, Godswill Obioma, said that the school curriculum was revised to improve the quality of education in Nigeria.
2014 The revised BEC comprises of the following subjects: 1.English Studies, 2. Mathematics, 3. Cultural and Creative Arts (CCA) 4. One Nigerian Language, 5. Basic Science and Technology (BST) i.Basic Science, ii. Basic Technology, iii. Physical &Health, iv. ii.Information Technology 6. Pre- Vocational Studies, PVS – to be introduced from Primary 4 i. Home Economics, ii. Agriculture 7. Religion and National Values, RNV; i. Christian Religious Studies, ii. Islamic Studies, iii. Social Studies, iv. Civic Education, v. security Education 8. French – to be introduced from Primary 4 9. Business Studies/Entrepreneurship, BSE – to be introduced in JSS1) 10. Arabic (Optional)
He disclosed that the implementation of the revised BEC had been approved by the Nigeria Examination Council, NEC, to commence in September 2014, beginning from Primary 1 and JSS 1, which will gradually phase out the old BEC.
Thus, Primary 1-3 would offer a minimum of Six and a maximum of seven subjects with Arabic (optional) but compulsory for those taking Islamic Studies from Primary 1-6 and JSS 1-3. Now where are we heading to? Lets find out Public Primary/Secondary Schools, Islamic private and other Private schools vis-à-vis ongoing Curriculum?
