CBSE to introduce international curriculum in 2013
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to introduce international curriculum (CBSE-i) across 100 schools in India from the next academic year. The main objective of this curriculum is to embed social awareness among students. The new international curriculum will encourage students from Class I to take part in community service in partnership with an NGO and also concentrate on research from standard IV. This new curriculum will help students pursue their higher studies abroad and interact effectively with around 29 schools in South-Asia and the Middle East.
Sources from CBSE informed that they had planned to run CBSE-i in 50 schools on trial basis but with more than 400 schools showing interest to join, the Board has decided to include 100 schools under the new curriculum.
However, some educationists are doubtful about to what extent these practices will actually be implemented. An educationist informed that this new curriculum is already a part of the National Curriculum Framework. He also emphasized on how research activities can mould a child’s future if implemented efficiently and that social consciousness must be cultivated from early childhood.
