After a major overhaul in the syllabus from class I to class IX in the previous years, now class X curriculum of the State Board will see major changes from the ensuing academic year 2014-15.

With this, the far-reaching changes in school curricula mooted by the State Council of Education Research and Training(SCERT) from 2010-11 academic year will come to an end.

It may be recalled that the process had begun with changes in class I and II syllabus in 2010-11 and continued with updating the syllabus for III, VI and VII in 2011-12. In 2012-13, the books for classes IV, V, VIII and IX were redesigned and in 2013-14 those of class X will be upgraded.

The enactment of Right to Education Act in 2009 contributed majorly to these changes in school curricula, said the director of SCERT G Gopal Reddy.

“Though the National Curriculum Framework 2005 brought out by the HRD ministry mandates revamping of school curricula continuously, but it was only after the RTE that the process hastened. Thus, after 12 years the syllabus for class 1 to 9 has been upgraded,’’ he pointed out.

The new syllabus aims to make learning more activity-oriented by delving deep into the subject, said a textbook writer from the SCERT.

‘’Generally, our state syllabus is known for its numerous topics in each subject. However, there was no depth and the curriculum was very peripheral. Now, the number of topics will reduce with more focus on developing analytical thinking of a student,’’ he added.
