The Maharashtra State government is slowly but steadily fulfilling its goal of improving its quality of education. In 2017, due to a series of planned changes, the textbooks of Class 7 and 9 will be revised. Nand Kumar, Principal Secretary, School Education Department, Maharashtra, confirmed the news.
The state government will introduce the changes in the textbooks in a phased manner. The syllabus of Class 6 has already been changed.
Also in the pipeline are advanced teaching methodologies and conceptual learning. Once the process of textbook production is finalised, a plan will be prepared for teachers of all schools teaching students in Classes 7 and 9.
