Suggestions invited by MHRD for reduction in syllabus

The Department of School Education and Literacy under Ministry of Human Resource Development had announced couple of weeks back that they have started their work towards reduction of syllabus and bringing changes in the curriculum for class 1 to class 12.

It was also announced that suggestions from teachers, parents and students will be invited which will be taken into consideration during the entire process of revising the syllabus.

The department has now given this opportunity to all to provide their suggestions by 30th April (Monday).

They have provided a link to access a form in which you can provide your personal details and provide your suggestions regarding changes which you think must be made in the syllabus.

Following was the announcement which has been made on the MHRD website:

Inviting suggestions on rationalising curriculum/ syllabus/ subject contents for class I to class XII with the objective of all round development of students

It has been envisioned that in order to develop a fairer and more egalitarian society comprising of well-balanced human beings, in addition to cognitive and analytical skills, adequate attention on activities like life skills, experiential learning, health and physical education, sports, visual and performing arts, literary & creative skills, and work based education are indispensable. Though the existing curriculum does incorporate these skills, however, the load of curriculum in cognitive and analytical area seems to be so heavy that students practically do not get much time to develop skills in other areas.

In order to balance the curriculum for cognitive and analytical areas with curriculum in other life skills including creativity and sports, specific suggestions are invited from teachers, academics, students, parents and other stakeholders associated with school education. The objective is to make the content more balanced in various subjects offered from class I to class XII as prescribed by NCERT/CBSE.

Suggestions could be made latest by 6th April (Friday). It will be appreciated if suggestions are precise. It is assured that your personal details will remain confidential.
