This article examines the changes that have taken place in the teaching and the curriculum of Religious Education (RE) in Botswana from 1966 to today. It demonstrates that the teaching of the subject in the country’s primary and secondary schools has contributed to the development of social values and moral
standards in the learners. We also observe that the ecumenical teaching approach has infl uenced the learners to be tolerant to people holding divergent views.
