MHRD seeks suggestions from public to trim school syllabus

To ensure all-round development of students and to reduce their burden, the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) on Monday sought suggestions from public on rationalizing curriculum for Class I to XII.

“There is an urgent need to rationalize the school curriculum because the objective of education is to prepare a good human being from the system,” HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said, adding, “Along with academic education, life skills, experiential learning, physical education and creative skills are needed.”

The objective of seeking suggestions is to make the content more balanced in various subjects offered from Class I to XII as prescribed by NCERT/CBSE.

“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 rationalization of syllabus which many people believe is too heavy and inappropriate for age,” Javadekar said.

He also urged all stakeholders of education including teachers, headmasters, school management, educationalists, parents, students, NGO, experts, public representatives and all who have interest and opinion in this issue to send their suggestions.

According to the MHRD, the suggestions can be made from March 5, 2018 till April 6, 2018. It should be precise and may be given online in the prescribed format.

The MHRD said that the personal details of the persons submitting the suggestions will remain confidential.

According to reports, the HRD minister had in last month said that the NCERT syllabus will be reduced by half from 2019 academic session with the objective to promote co-curricular activities among students.

“School syllabus is more than that of for BA and B.Com courses. Everything has been put in the syllabus. This needs to be reduced by half so that students get time for various other activities that enable all round development of students and make them better human beings,” the minister said.
