JOHANNESBURG – The Basic Education Department says it’s working to ensure that multiple perspectives are reflected in South Africa’s history textbooks.
Minister Angie Motshekga on Tuesday approved the reappointment of a ministerial task team to overhaul the current history curriculum from grades 4 to 12.
She says the decision was taken to make the subject more Afrocentric and relevant to South African pupils.
“And take it through the necessary channels like Parliament, Cabinet, meeting stakeholders and finalising it. And also, talking to publishers because they also have a huge task of printing these books and making sure that they’re delivered on time.”
