Government has revealed plans to reintroduce Civics as a subject in primary and secondary schools.
Civics was a subject taught in Malawi schools but it was abolished. Currently, lessons that would have been in Civics are included in Social Studies.
Director of Secondary and Distance Education in the Ministry of Education Chikondano Mussa said government has plans to reintroduce Civics as a standalone lesson.
Meanwhile, government has formulated a project to strengthen civics and citizenship lessons in the country’s school curriculum.
Speaking at Domasi in Zomba during the launch of the project, Mussa said the aim is to develop citizens that are engaged, empowered and informed.
She added that the project will first target teachers to help them impart required education to learners many of whom are not well informed on what the society expects from them.
