The social sciences are now taught, in one form or another, in schools throughout the country. This was not generally the case in the past. Before independence, the teaching of subjects such as sociology, political science and even economics was confined mainly to the universities and colleges. After independence there was a steady expansion in the teaching of the social sciences in universities and colleges, and the demand soon grew for their introduction in schools.
