The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), is planning to set up a committee to review the National Curriculum Framework (NCF), complying with new National Education Policy (NEP). The NCF has revised the framework for four times so far and this proposed revision will be the fifth.
The council is waiting for the finalisation of the new education policy and the committee will review it. The committee will keep NEP as the base for revision and then the textbooks will be revised as per the new framework.
According to NCERT Director Hrushikesh Senapaty, NCF was revised 14 years ago and once the new education policy is in place, the curriculum framework will be revised. The council will undertake a survey to analyze the quality of primary education and suggest the required changes.
Initially, a team of NCERT officials will visit six states to conduct the survey and once the findings are received, the survey will be extended to other states, too, and the findings will be reviewed to give shape to the new curriculum framework. The blocks that have been identified for the preliminary survey are Shillong, Mysore, Rajasthan, Bhopal and Orissa.
