The National Council of Educational Research and Training is all set to have a review of all schools textbooks after more than 10 years. According to the sources available, Prof. Ranjana Arora will conduct this exercise.
The NCF was framed in the year 2005 and the council’s school textbooks undergone significant changes. The NCERT has set up 21 expert committees to review the NCF towards UPA Government’s tenure in 2014. Then HRD Minster, Smriti Irani, started the exercise until a new national education policy was drafted.
“Over the last 10 years, the NCERT textbooks have tweaked, but the changes are primarily based on complaints only. A Comprehensive review and updates have been overdue for almost two years”, said a source, who did not wish to be identified.
The review is expected to take up to a year. “The country’s economic conditions have changed due to many reasons. The last major change was made to political science textbooks in the year 2012. It has dropped six ‘offensive’ cartoons from four books which are from IX, X, XI and XII classes that are following protests in parliament. Now, the NCERT on Friday released supplementary reading material based on Principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to encourage students.
UDL material can customise to suit students with different learning needs, the NCERT adapted its reading titled like ‘Barkha’ to include Braille vocabulary and tactile illustrations so that textbooks can read through sighted and visual way.
