A section of educationists have put up a stiff resistance to the proposed ruled rules that seek to change the curriculum of the Bachelor of Elementary Education. The draft National Council for Teacher Education (Recognition Norms & Procedure) Regulations, 2014, saw some stiff resistance from some members of the Council at its meeting in New Delhi September 25.
What has particularly upset a section of educationists is the bid to change the curriculum of the Bachelor of Elementary Education (B.El.Ed).
According to some members, the draft circulated a couple of days ahead of the meeting seeks to supersede the 2007 regulations. The draft, according to some academics, was prepared without the approval of the NCTE Council and runs “contrary’’ to the report submitted by the Norms Committee (set up as mandated by the Justice Verma Committee on Teacher Education constituted by the Supreme Court) which had laid down norms for all teacher education courses including B.Ed and M.Ed.
The NCTE meeting that was held to push for its own norms went on for several hours but remained inconclusive and is now likely to reconvene today.
