NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Several subjects taught at public schools across the country are getting a major overhaul thanks to newly revised curricula by the Ministry of Education, Technical and Vocational Training.

Our Jasmin Brown spoke to two top education officials about the changes.

 

Pre-primary, civics, primary mathematics, language arts, primary social studies, primary science, office procedures, carpentry and construction technology, computer studies and biology are just some of the subjects with updated curriculums.

Ministry of Education, Technical and Vocational Training Assistant Director In The Early Childhood Education section, Leja Burrows, says the updates could not have come soon enough.

Some updates to the learning process include integrating coding and software development into computer studies, a move officials say brings education into the 21st century.

In addition to changing the curriculum for some subjects, brand new curriculum will be introduced for entrepreneurial skills.

When it comes to pre-primary education, Assistant Director of Education With Responsibility For Primary Curriculum Vanria Jack says they are implementing critical thinking components.

While acknowledging they have made significant strides, Education Minister Glenys Hanna-Martin says there is also a need for a review of the physical education and creative arts curriculum.
