The complete foundation for curriculum development was explained by NCERT on Tuesday. NCERT’s introduction of a “rationalised syllabus” provoked a debate. The National Curriculum Framework (NCF) for school education, according to NCERT, is updated when professionals who perform primary research review the assessment that was presented.
NCERT officials have stated that 25 State Focus Groups are being formed, one for each state, and that each group will consist of experts in pedagogy, assessment, environmental studies, inclusion, knowledge of India, and a variety of academic fields, including language, the social sciences, science, mathematics, and technology. From each of their State Focus Groups, the NCERT has received 608 position papers representing the contributions of 27 states. These inputs are important for the development of NCF.
NCERT officials were quoted as saying: “Each state and UT are conducting at least 3,000 mobile app-based surveys of grassroots stakeholders, such as teachers, anganwadi workers, local communities, and tradespeople.State and UT governments selected 8,391 surveyors for this purpose. 1.3 lakh stakeholders have already submitted survey reports to NCERT.”
A poem about the Dalit movement, a chapter on the Cold War, and three chapters on the Mughal courts in a history textbook were removed from the rationalised syllabus recently released by NCERT. Faiz Ahmed Faiz’s poetry was taken out of the class 10 textbook’s chapters on “Religion, Communalism and Politics – Communalism, Secular State” and “Democratic Politics II.” Additionally, the chapters titled “Challenges to Democracy,” “Popular Struggle and Movements,” and “Democracy and Diversity” have been eliminated.
Officials from NCERT explained: “Decentralized consultation at all levels, from villages and cities to districts, states, and Union ministries, is being used to construct the National Curriculum.Technology is being leveraged to make the consultation process wider. States and UTs are playing a major role in the curriculum development process, making it an example of cooperative federalism.
