Abstract

Curriculum is the hard core of education that provides the basic contents and means of relevant knowledge, skills and attitudes for sustainable development. Schools are the generational educative agencies which would impart the functional learning experiences required to refine and nurture learners into productive manpower for technological advancement, industrial development and economic growth of the nation. The purpose of this paper is to highlight the relevance of curriculum reforms in the facilitation of educational innovations, entrepreneurial training and wealth creation for quality human life. It will be construed as a potent platform to seek and resolve prevailing problems associated with access to quality education, human capacity building, self-reliant employment opportunities and welfare of the citizenry. The school curriculum should provide a diversity of learning contents, creative innovations, professional standards and industrial experiences that will maximize the talents of learners, generate job opportunities and cater for the critical needs of self-reliant society. Hence, it is suggested that an increased access and funding of comprehensive education, distillation of entrepreneurial initiatives into the subject curricula, and the building of school-industry-community relationships and partnerships shall enhance continuing production of competent and responsive school graduates into the world of work. Such an educated workforce will have the capacity and capability to drive social, political, industrial and economic development for shared prosperity and quality of human life.
