ncertguyWith the Union Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) all geared up to come up with its New Education Policy (NEP), the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), has submitted its components, holding deliberations on 13 themes of school education at 62 places across the country.

Addressing the media, NCERT Director H.K. Senapathy said that the New Curriculum Framework (NCF) for school education will be prepared after the announcement of the NEP.

The last NCP for school education was designed in 2005 for 10 years.

“The new syllabus for school education with new thrust areas will be formulated only after the NEP is announced,” he disclosed.

Mr. Senapathy also mentioned that the textbooks of NCERT in English, Hindi and Urdu had been made available in digital mode which can be accessed for free and now, steps had been taken to upload textbooks in the regional languages of the respective States.

The NCERT will be issuing circulars to all States by September-end to implement its guidelines on assessing the learning outcomes of children studying in Classes 1 to 8.

Mr. Senapathy said that the assessment on learning outcomes will go beyond the syllabus. The initiative will look into the child’s learning capabilities and skills in a bid to make children think creatively, in an innovative manner and independently.

    I think that NCERT is doing a lot to improve the education system in India .CBSE is the best board for me ,whereas ICSE has a lot of pressure in mind with studies and lengthy answers too .CBSE pattern is good for getting government jobs too .
