Schools in Karnataka to Match CBSE Standards After Syllabus Revamp

Posted By:

Students in over 75000 schools in Karnataka will have a change in their syllabus from the next academic year. The move aims at making the state syllabus on par with the CBSE standards.

The upgraded textbooks will be presented by the textbook revision committee, headed by professor and writer Baraguru Ramachandrappa, next week.

Schools in Karnataka to Match CBSE Standards

The government had set up a committee to suggest measures to bring the state syllabus up to speed with the CBSE witnessing a gap in learning abilities among students of Karnataka state board schools. According to the government, the exercise has been carried out without diluting the flavour of local culture in state textbooks.

The committee had researched CBSE and state books for Classes 6 to 10 in each subject and found that state books were good in many areas and were upgraded to CBSE where the latter's curriculum was more relevant.

Government Extends Deadline for CBSE Schools to Disclose Their Database

Meanwhile, the Union government has extended the dates for the mandatory disclosure of schools database for CBSE.

There are 18,179 CBSE schools of which 13,634 have submitted the required information. "We will analyse them and, in case we find something missing, we will contact the schools individually," said Rajesh Kumar Chaturvedi, chairman, CBSE.

"We are fine with giving more time to schools that have not met the deadline. These details are necessary for the mobile application to be functional. Therefore, instead of giving additional time to individual schools, we have extended the period for all the remaining 4,500 schools," he added.

Basic information such as contact details, affiliation status, etc., of the school, management details, photographs and videos of the school, faculty information, student information, academic information, infrastructure information (including physical infrastructure details, facilities available in school, transport facility details), location information and other information such as pass percentage of last three years, vacation period of school and academic calendar are the information required to be furnished.
