Major Changes in NCERT syllabus post implementation of the New Education Policy
Drafting of the New Education Policy (NEP) brings with it extensive changes in examination, curriculum and pedagogy
New Education Policy
The New Education Policy (NEP) draft was submitted to the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) by the Committee for the Draft National Education Policy headed by K. Kasturirangan, the former ISRO chief.
The NEP draft brings with it extensive changes in the examination, curriculum and pedagogy. The committee has suggested several reforms to improve school education. The NEP 2019 draft aims at transforming both curriculum and pedagogy by 2022.
According to recent reports, the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) textbooks are set for another major revision. These changes are set to take place once NEP is finalised and the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) is in place.
A similar revision in the NCERT syllabus took place in 2017 and was implemented from the current academic session. According to sources in the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), school textbooks will now see another revision in the next two years.
Changes in NCERT syllabus
The changes in the NCERT textbooks will be in line with NEP and NCF. According to the NEP draft,1. Textbooks should be revised in a way that they contain only the essential core material in each subject, keeping in mind a constructivist, discovery-based, analysis-based, engaging and enjoyable style of learning. 2. NCERT should also prepare a few supplementary units in certain subjects in addition to the core material. These units may be used to enhance the core material in various states.
Currently, the government is studying the NEP draft and the policy will be finalised after consultations, feedback and suggestions.
