Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said two panels constituted by the AAP government to work on an education board of Delhi and new school curriculum are expected to submit their reports by next month.
Sisodia reviewed the content of deshbhakti curriculum for Delhi schools and chaired the third joint review meeting of the committees to take stock of the progress so far.
The two committees — Delhi Education Board Committee and Delhi Curriculum Reform Committee — were constituted in July 2020 to recommend new curriculum for children up to the age of 14 years and setting up of an education board.
According to Sisodia, both panels are expected to submit their reports by next month.
“Assessment would be the basis of deshbhakti curriculum. Understanding of the teacher on where her child stands today and subsequently thereafter on issues like inclusiveness, gender, different forms of discrimination, integrity, care for public property and natural resources, etc. would be the key to enable the child to become true a deshbhakt, Sisodia said.
During the meeting, the new curriculum committee presented the curricular design for enabling children in the age group of 3-8 years with diversity of knowledge, competencies, values and attitudes.
Along the similar lines, the committee will recommend curriculum for children in the age group of 8-11 and 11-14 as well.
