African history should be taught in schools

April 17, 2007 by  

The National Independent Educational Coalition (NIEC), has launched an online petition aimed at promoting the introduction of African History to the National Curriculum. The petition will be presented to the DfES on the 30th April along with an official response by the NIEC, aimed at influencing the current Educational Review of the Curriculum being delivered in UK schools.

The NIEC represents parents, students, teachers, educationalists and consultants united on the concern of African and Caribbean underachievement in the UK. The organisation would like to see more cultural diversity included in the Curriculum.
