CBSE's Directive of Introducing New Elective Subjects Receives Criticism from Students

Jul 8, 2013 05:48 IST

    With intent to accustom higher secondary students with Indian culture, heritage and traditions, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to introduce new elective subject in higher secondary curriculum for classes 11 and 12. This directive for new elective subject will include the option for subjects like Astronomy in India, Life Science, Indian Literature, Ayurveda, Indian Philosophy, Indian Metallurgy and Traditional Practices in Environment Conservation.
    The elective subject will entail 30% weightage for research project and viva as well as will offer students an opportunity to visit places of historic significance.
    While students who take interests in the subjects are happy with the move, those who wish for a crisper and career oriented education system denounce the step as inappropriate.
