Central Vigilance Commission in its Annual Zonal review meeting held in July this year had asked Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to explore ways to increase lessons on integrity and honesty in schools. CBSE adopts/adapts the curriculum formulated by NCERT and prescribes/recommends textbooks prepared by NCERT for class IX to XII. The lessons on integrity and honesty are well integrated in languages, science, social sciences and environmental education.
The CBSE affiliated schools are encouraged to have eco clubs, integrity clubs, Health and Wellness Clubs and Heritage Clubs as co-curricular activities. The CBSE has also brought out teacher manuals on value education to help teachers to integrate human values in teaching. The CBSE has also decided to send a detailed circular to CBSE affiliated schools asking them to hold year long programmes and activities in schools to create awareness among school children regarding human values.
