NCERT to set up a committee to revise NCF
The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) is set to form a committee to review the 14-year-old National Curriculum Framework (NCF). NCERT Director, Hrushikesh Senapaty, said that the council will announce a committee by the end of October.
The NCF has been revised four times so far, with the last revision happening in 2005.
Mr Senapaty added that although textbooks were reviewed in the last two years, the curriculum framework would require a thorough revision once the new national education policy is in place.
“We are just waiting for the new education policy to be finalised and a committee for reviewing the NCF will be announced by month-end. The committee, however, will keep NEP as the base of revision. Ultimately, the textbooks will be revised as per the new framework,” Mr Senapaty said.
