15 Jun Gambia: Human rights curriculum
The Interdisciplinary Committee on Civic Education and Critical Thinking in The Gambia aims to make civic education part of school curriculum.
“In the new Gambia, it is, unfortunately, the vain wrangling and lack of a constructive dialogue among Gambians in matters of national development that have caught the attention of a group of Gambian scholars dubbed the Interdisciplinary Committee on Civic Education and Critical Thinking in The Gambia. The committee has members who reside in The Gambia and across the diaspora. Its purpose is to engender a serious discussion concerning the state and need for civic education in The Gambia. One of the first tasks of the group was to research about the current state of affairs of civic education in the country. Before we delve into our discussion of findings, it is important to unpack the broad categories of skill-set that constitute the concept of civic education we have applied in our analysis.”
