The government of India is inviting suggestions from everybody to develop a well-balanced curriculum that will help in the overall development of the child.
Everyone agrees that in addition to cognitive and analytical skills, adequate attention should also be given to activities like life skills, experiential learning,health and physical education, sports, visual and performing arts,literary & creative skills, and work based education.
The current curriculum seems to focus more on the cognitive and analytical areas, and doesn’t give much time to students to develop skills in other areas.
In order to balance the curriculum for cognitive and analytical areas with curriculum in other life skills including creativity and sports, specific suggestions are invited from teachers, academics, students, parents and other stakeholders associated with school education. The objective is to make the content more balanced in various subjects offered from class I to class XII as prescribed by NCERT/CBSE.
Very rarely the govt is open and seeks opinion of stakeholders directly. Please share in your parents groups and teachers groups and also please send your suggestions.
