cbse to introduce international syllabus for classes 1 to ix
CBSE has announced it will launch international syllabus for classes I to IX in a phase-wise manner, and hopes that all Indian schools will have to do the same due to the pressure of one-kind of global education. It is the need of the time because people live not in one but many nations these days and the world has become a small village due to internet mobile phones and faster mode of air-transportation.CBSE will execute the programme from next year. It will be the first Indian board to do it. The system will begin from CBSE – affiliated schools abroad, and then it will be rolled out in the country. Indian CBSE schools will be free to accept or delay it. But eventually they have to follow it. The syllabus will remain unchanged for Mathematics and Science. Social Science and language will go through changes. The syllabus will be same what is used by International Baccalaureate (IB) schools – only few are present in India. Global standard promotes activity based learning which is the best suited for students. India-specific syllabus needs to be abolished to enable students to compete with those of other countries in an equal manner. Hopefully, other boards will do the same.
