Changes will be seen in the syllabus of school education, NCERT will take the decision, the curriculum load will be less

Em

Employment News-The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has decided to reduce the syllabus for the students in the academic session 2022-23. NCERT has taken this decision in view of the continuous closure of schools due to Corona pandemic and non-availability of online resources for many students. Academic activities in schools have been disrupted in the last two years due to COVID-19. Teachers of government and private schools are continuously teaching students through online education system. Now in view of the current circumstances, the council has made a plan to reduce the load of the syllabus.

As per the National Policy on Education (NEP) 2020, the council is already working on curriculum reforms as part of the National Curriculum Framework (NCF). The NCF provides a comprehensive framework for the curriculum content taught in private and public schools across the country.

On December 15, 2021, NCERT-in-charge director Sridhar Srivastava had written a letter to all the department heads asking them to prepare a report on the shortfall in the syllabus. At the same time, in the year 2021, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has divided the 10th and 12th board examinations into two terms, reducing the courses of the students. Now it is expected that soon NCERT will announce it reducing the syllabus load.

Students from remote areas will also get education
Under the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, classes will be conducted by the Ministry of Education through 12 TV channels of Swayam Prabha for students from class 1 to class 12 in remote areas of the country. Two hours of classes will be telecast through the TV channel for the students of classes I to X. Along with this, there will be a three-hour class broadcast for the students of class 11th and 12th. Through which there should not be any hindrance in the academic activity of these students.

Teachers are ready, NCERT should take decision soon
Anil Yadav, Principal of Sarvodaya Co-Ed Senior Secondary School, Pitampura ZP Block, said that in the year 2021, CBSE had reduced the syllabus of students by 15 to 20 percent. However, it did not make much difference as schools remained closed for most of the days. Students have been able to study only through online education system. We are hopeful that NCERT will soon take a decision to reduce the syllabus of all classes.

Mobile is needed for online learning
Principal Anil Yadav told that the teachers of government schools take online classes of students from 8 am to 2 pm. But there are many students whose parents go to work and those students do not have mobile phones. That's why teachers are taking classes of students even during 6 in the morning and 8 in the evening. Teachers are constantly working to complete their courses by paying constant attention to average students. Students need mobile phones. In such a situation, through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), these students should be provided with mobile phones.
