About the webinar

This presentation aims at deciphering the relationship between the curriculum and the nation it serves. Using changes to the curriculum occurring now in Senegalese schools as an example, it will go through some impediments that many consider hindrances to the students’ performances and therefore, the success of education in Senegal and in other former colonial countries. In addtion, this presentation will identify the needs of the moment that are not included in the curriculum and propose them as key points for the modernisation of the schools and their curricula.
