ACC to introduce the subject of corruption into school curriculum

The anti-corruption commission in conjunction with the curriculum development centre under the ministry of education has commenced the process of integrating the subject of anti corruption into the education curriculum from grade 1-12.

According to ACC public relations officer timothy moono this is in a bid to ensure that young people begin to learn about the evils of corruption at an early age.
Mr. Moono says it is envisaged that this process will be completed by the end of 2012.
He says the integration of anti-corruption issues at tertiary level is expected to be initiated in 2013 once the process is completed at primary and secondary level education.
Mr. Moono says training for civic education teachers will also commence to take into account of the revised syllabi.
He says in this vein, the commission has intensified the establishment of anti-corruption clubs in schools and so far 15clubs have been formed in various schools throughout the country.
Meanwhile Mr Moono says the implementation of the national anti-corruption policy has continued to progress steadily.
He says the commission has facilitated the establishment of 3more integrity committees at various institutions such as the road development agency, government medical stores and ministry of health.
Mr. Moono says this brings the total number of established integrity committees throughout the country to 23.
