The ministry is seeking to halve the school syllabus prescribed by the tiol Council of Educatiol Research and Training (NCERT) and CBSE in schools, the HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said last month. A total of six workshops were also organised which included NGOs, education experts, state government officers, and many teachers, to brainstorm the changes, he had told reporters.
“(T)here is an urgent need to ratiolise the school curriculum because the objective of education is to prepare a good human being from the system. Along with academic education, life skills, experiential learning, physical education and creative skills are needed.
“We need to develop the system where students get time for each of this and can progress in the areas which he or she likes most, therefore there is continuous demand of ratiolisation of syllabus which many people believe is too heavy and ippropriate for age,” the statement quoted Javadekar as saying.
