Indian syllabi too ambitious: UNESCO

Curriculum of Indian schools has drawn sharp criticism from the UNESCO.

By Admin 30th Jan, 2014 05:00 pm

According to UNESCO's Education for All Global Monitoring Report - 2014, Indian curriculum is too ambitious and unrealistic for a child.

 

The report says, "Vietnam's curriculum focuses on foundation skills, is closely matched with what children are able to learn and pays particular attention to disadvantaged learners. By contrast, India's curriculum, which outpaces what pupils can realistically learn and achieve in the time given, is a factor in widening learning gaps."

 

The report further reads, "It's crucial that primary school pupils master the foundation skills of basic numeracy and literacy in the early grades, so they can understand what's taught in later grades."

 

The report suggests that curriculum of Indian schools has drawn sharp criticism from the UNESCO.
