The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) started preparing the new curriculum for the next academic year that will come into force from April 2021. The new curriculum is formed taking the New Education Policy in account.
The NCRET has submitted its report to the HRD Ministry earlier this month. The report highlights the key changes that the council plans to bring to its course curriculum and syllabus for school level studies. Changes in syllabus and books will mark the biggest change in terms of reforms when it comes to school level education.
The new curriculum plans to bring the new academic session from April 2021. However, the final implementation of the same would depend on the approvals from all the stakeholders including HRD Ministry.
These textbooks will be used by schools across the country as the guide for learning processes and teaching pedagogy. The new curriculum plans to reduce the content in each of the subjects to the core essentials and centre its focus on the fundamentals.
The new curriculum is being developed on the basis of the New Education Policy and the reforms that are being pioneers through it.
