From the next academic session, Rajasthan Government would introduce new syllabus for the schools in the state. The new school syllabus would carry stories of ‘mahapurush’(great leaders) among other relevant topics of books. In order to make the children aware of the Indian culture and values such a step is being taken, as pointed out through official statement.
The Rajasthan Minister of State for Education Vasudev Devanani has said while attending the teachers’ day ceremony that new syllabus would be rolled in for class 1 to 12 in government schools. The syllabus would bring major changes in books that would cover Indian culture, moral science and include stories of great leaders and latest technologies developed in the nation.
The Minister further said that the students from elementary classes should learn about the lives of these brave leaders and heroes of our country. The new syllabus would not only enhance knowledge of the students but would make them eligible to compete globally and handle present day challenges that are cropping up. The new books would get printed according to the new syllabus and distribution of it would take place over 83500 schools in the state systematically.
Previously the State Education Department had increased the school duration further by 40 minutes for which it had to face severe criticism from teachers association, parents and other groups. The minister recently reduced it to 20 minutes and did away with the separate timings during winters and summers. The total duration of the schools would now be 6 hours and 10 minutes.
