ABSTRACT

The need to produce an enriched uniform curriculum with a view to replacing the existing curricula of the private Islamic schools located in the South-west of Nigeria served as the impetus to carry-out this study. In addition, the study came up as a scientific procedure initiative to facilitate the integration of the private Islamic schools as stipulated in the National Policy on Education. Having elaborated on the need in terms of justification, the study took two giant steps, namely: evaluation of the existing curricula and, next, the design of an
enriched uniform curriculum. Based on stratified sampling technique, the study used a sample of 1206 students, I I 8 teachers and 60 principals. The instrument.found appropriate to col/eel primary data was Curriculum Evaluation Model, which was supplemented with three different questionnaires, namely: Students' Needs Assessment Questionnaire (SNAQ), Teachers' Assessment of Schools Questionnaire (TASQ) and Curriculum Evaluation Questionnaire for Principals (CEQP) as well as interview schedule. The data so collected were analyzed using frequency counts, percentage indices, the chi-square, the Multiple Regression Analysis, the Independent T-test and the Multi- Factor Analysis of Variance statistical tools. The study revealed, among others, deficiencies in the curricula of private Islamic schools. such as lopsidedness of the curricula, lack of uniform standard format, caliber of teachers, lack of uniform textbooks, all of which make each school an island unto itself The implication of these deficiencies, as revealed by the study, is the creation of a myriad of problems for the products of this school system. As a means of rectifying the deficiencies, the research developed. validated and trial-tested an enriched curriculum package. The package, of course, was backed up with recommendations, such as periodic review of curriculum, teacher training /re- training, production of textbooks, and inclusion of subjects like Social Studies, English Language, History, Yoruba, and Mathematics. Also dovetailed into the recommendations is the need to conduct further studies, which include developing and validating Arabic curriculum for private Islamic schools and the involvement of governmental agencies in the continual curriculum review of private Islamic schools.
