NaCCA to Withdraw 'Our World Our People' Subject from Standards-based Curriculum

The National Council for Curriculum Assessment (NaCCA) has opted to remove the subject “Our World Our People” from the Standards-based Curriculum.

This decision follows a thorough review and comparison of the Religious and Moral Education (RME) and Our World Our People (OWOP) subjects by the Council.

The exclusion of this subject from the curriculum will become effective starting the 2024/2025 academic year. In a letter addressed to the President of the Ghana Publishers Association, NaCCA explained that the examination of both curricula revealed significant similarities in sub-strands and focus areas.

NaCCA expressed concern that the duplication of knowledge between the two curricula was apparent. The decision to withdraw the OWOP subject aims to address this issue and enhance the adopted Standard-Based Curriculum in Ghana. NaCCA noted that feedback from teachers echoed similar observations, reinforcing the need for this adjustment.

The council anticipates that this action will contribute to the enrichment of the curriculum, allowing facilitators to concentrate on the unique strands outlined in the Religious and Moral Education. This, in turn, is expected to enhance learners’ understanding of the curriculum.
