Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan has asked citizens to take part in a public survey for the National Curriculum Framework (NCF), which will be used to build a new curriculum.
Pradhan tweeted from his official account saying, “ I appeal to all citizens to participate in the Citizen Survey for NCF for developing #NayeBharatKaNayaCurriculum. A dynamic National Curriculum Framework in line with the NEP 2020 will play a major role in achieving the goal of Viksit Bharat.”
Further, he added, “Development of a vibrant, dynamic, inclusive and futuristic National Curriculum Framework is essential for integrating cultural rootedness along with a global outlook, freeing education from the colonial hangover and instilling a deeper sense of pride in our next generations.”
The Ministry of Education has requested public input through an online public consultation poll for the development of the NCF and, consequently, the design of syllabi, textbooks, and other instructional materials.
According to an official statement, all stakeholders, including teachers, headmasters or principals, school leaders, educationists, parents, students, community members, NGOs, experts, public representatives, artists, artisans, farmers, and anyone with an interest in school education and teacher education, are invited to participate in this online survey, which is being conducted in 23 languages.
