By Aaron Humes: The Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports has confirmed plans to expand the social studies curriculum to include incidents of Belizean history.
It was reported that the Ministry is preparing to mass-produce copies of the 1859 Anglo-Guatemalan Treaty which tried to offer a lasting solution to what was then a dispute over the boundaries of British Honduras and Guatemala, between the latter and Britain.
Guatemala repudiated the treaty after Britain did not follow through in building a road linking the two territories as provided for in an article of the treaty.
While unaware of whether such production has started, CEO in the Ministry David Leacock says the Treaty and other incidents of Belizean history will now be part of a revamped social studies curriculum in schools.
