NCERT has recently rolled out a notification in pretext to its syllabus which is followed by the different schools affiliated to CBSE all over the country. The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), in a recent notification, made it clear that it has directed as many as more than 18,000 schools which are affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) that no amount of homework shall be given to the students till Class 2. All the schools affiliated to the CBSE Board of Education adhere to the books as well as the syllabus which has been prescribed by NCERT to the students of all classes studying in these schools.
NCERT Proposes No Homework For Students Till Class 2
The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) is the body concerned with all the books as well as the syllabus which is prescribed by all the schools which are affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) all across the country. Recently, NCERT made it clear that no amount of homework should be given to the students till Class 2.
Adding to this statement, NCERT further said that the students till Class 3 should be taught only as many as 3 subjects and not more than that. With the addition of more subjects in such tender classes, the students tend to get overburdened and are not able to focus on the overall development as well. NCERT holds the responsibility of all the books, texts, study material as well as the academic syllabus of each class in the CBSE schools located at various places across the country.
NCERT Formulates Educational Changes | Know Why
Recently, a plea was filed in the Madras High Court which sought a direction for the CBSE in order to adhere to the actual syllabus which has been prescribed by NCERT. Certain schools tend to follow practices which ends up dividing the students and thus leads to the promotion of discrimination in the society.
The need of the hour is to demolish them which can be done with the help of proper vigilance of the parents. Class 1 students who are taught as many as 8 subjects which include Computer Science, as well as GK, promote role learning. Therefore, students till class 3 in the CBSE schools should not be taught more than 3 subjects which are the mother tongue, English as well as Mathematics.
These recommendations from National Council of Educational Research and Training might soon be considered.
