It reports on the findings of a study conducted with teachers in two case study secondary schools in the Solomon Islands using qualitative methods (group discussions and one-on-one interviews) The study revealed that the current teaching topics, themes and approaches of the social study curriculum are irrelevant and outdated its usefulness. There needs to be a review of the social study curriculum to cater for knowledge, values and skills that are relevant to the 21st century Solomon Island’s society.
