ONLY NCERT CURRICULUM FROM 2017-18 AT ALL CBSE SCHOOLS – PRIVATE SCHOOLS NOT HAPPY
CBSE schools will have to use NCERT textbooks from the 2017-18 academic session. While NCERT books are well defined for board examinations, several private schools have alleged that the move will reduce the schools to lower standards of quality education. All the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) affiliated schools have to follow NCERT curriculum from the commencing academic session 2017-18, as directed by CBSE.
This recent move will standardise study materials for schools across the country. The decision has been taken after recent reports of an eccentric experiment. A Class IV textbook asked students to suffocate a cat to death to understand the difference between living and non-living things.
