HYDERABAD: The committee on changes to be made to the school syllabus in Telangana is likely to submit its final report to the state government within a week. The committee, which has been studying the proposed changes for more than a month, has  concluded its study and prepared the report.

“The report has already been compiled but has to be approved by the editorial committee which gives clearance after a detailed examination,” said a senior official at the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), Telangana.

The report was supposed to be submitted to the government by end of January but was delayed by two weeks after the committee decided to lay more focus on the new syllabus.

The officials are aiming to send the copies of new textbooks to the printing press by the end of February so that the textbooks can be kept ready well in advance for the next academic year. As chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao wanted to have a look at the new books before they go to the press, the officials are cautious in making changes to the syllabus.

National Standards for State Schools

The National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA) directed the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) to follow the new national standards to measure the performance of schools in the state. SCERT officials, who recently attended a conference of NUEPA in New Delhi, said the national body would soon issue new guidelines according to which the schools will be assessed from the next academic year.
