OYINLOYE Olaoluwa Babatunde A. PhD

The focus of this study was to evaluate the curriculum of the Almajiri integrated model schools in Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital Territory for the content of peace education. The specific objectives of this study are to assess the current curriculum of the Almajiri Model Schools for the content of peace education and find out for the five years of its existence the measures the federal government put in place for the Almajiri to imbibe a culture of peace. The findings showed that there is a 32 % content of peace education in the school curriculum. The interview results also found that civic education should be added to the Almajiri integrated curriculum, strategies for Almajiri education should be regularly reviewed, a regular census of Almajiri schools is needed, as well as the mobilization and sensitization of the general public. The study recommended that religious orientations, seminars, and conferences should be organized from time to time to clarify the misinterpretation and misunderstanding associated with Almajiri and the Almajiranci system. The federal government need to improve the provision of basic social amenities in rural areas, as this can reduce the migration of the Almajirai to cities. The government also need to improve the condition of public schools by providing adequate infrastructure and adequate qualified teachers. Finally, generate job opportunities for graduates of formal schools to serve as incentives to motivate students of Almajiri Quranic Schools.
