A Human Rights-Based Approach to Zanzibar’s Language-in-education Policy
Abstract:In 2010, Zanzibar began the implementation of a new Education and Training policy. This policy will change important aspects of curriculum in primary education. It will increase the use of English and change the language of instruction in the science and mathematics. This article will critically analyse the new curriculum, how policies are being implemented and their consequences for quality learning. This analysis will provide a basis for examining how the curricula in Zanzibar is perceived and used in school, and the ways that teachers, academics and government officers interpret and deal with the issues related to the learning process within curriculum development and rights in education.
