THE proposed Heritage-Based Education 2024-30 Curriculum has divided teachers with some expressing scepticism, while raising concern on history of the country being made a compulsory subject.

The Heritage-Based Education 2024-30 Curriculum Framework is expected to embrace history as a basis for learning and infusing technology, and shall be implemented from ECD up to secondary school level.

National shrines and cultural heritage sites will be included throughout the curriculum, and the national pledge will be accorded special emphasis in order to entrench patriotism, loyalty and respect to learners.

Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ARTUZ) President Obert Masaraure said the current history being taught in schools is flawed.

Masaraure said:

We, however, take exception to the issue of emphasising the learning of a flawed history of Zimbabwe.

The current history was written to simply praise those who assumed power in 1980.

The true history of Zimbabwe, including the important roles of Zapu, Ndabaningi Sithole and all liberation war heroes should be taught.

Zimbabwe Teachers’ Association (ZIMTA) spokesperson Goodwill Taderera said the proposed curriculum was an upgrade from the Continuous Assessment Learning Activity (CALA) programme. Taderera said:

We are yet to study the proposed new curriculum, but it is a welcome development.

We hear that they have now made it a Heritage-Based curriculum and that they have reduced from the primary sector about 11 subjects to 6 and that from the secondary 7 to 5 and we think this is a welcome development.
