As of now, HP Board Schools use to follow SCERT Books (State Council of Educational Research and Training) from Class 1 to 12. Although the State Government wanted to implement NCERT books in the syllabus from session 2018 only. But the Education Board of HP State refused to do so by giving an explanation of the loss of Rs. 2.50 crore, as the SCERT stock will get hampered.
Here’s the reason to implement NCERT Books from Class 1 to 5
Although the decision taken by the Himachal Government is not sudden, but this was on the edge only. As many teachers and parents have complaints regarding the quality of education provided in the SCERT books in the state. Whereas from past many years most of the parents and teachers were asking to change the syllabus and books to be taught in the Government Schools.
Although NCERT (National Council of Educational Research and Training) in the HP Govt Schools will be implemented for only Class 1 to Class 5 students from 2019-20 session. Whereas Class 6 to 12 students will have to continue with SCERT books only as a part of their syllabus. It is for the first time that HP Govt Schools students to get National Council of Educational Research and Training Syllabus.
