- Citizenship Education: Curriculum Implications in Nigeria Secondary Schools.
Abstract: Citizenship education has been neglected over the years, because there was no clear boundary
between it and social studies. The understanding of citizenship as defined in the study, will help
the communities in particular and the nation in general to reduce to the barest minimum the
social crime in our society. Moreover, this has an implication for the present curriculum because
there is need for a curriculum that is relevant and functional in Nigeria. This can provide work
for the teeming youth which can be trained to be self-reliant. A potent curriculum can also help
to achieve the goals and objective of education as entrenched in the National Educational
Policy. In addition, it shows that teachers, students and the pedagogy for citizenship education
can be reformed as suggested by the new sociology of curriculum reforms.
