CBSE to Periodically Review Private Publishers’ Textbooks

In another attempt to increase the level of education in the country, CBSE has decided to periodically review the textbooks of private publishers that CBSE-affiliated schools prescribe.

The reviews will be to ensure that the textbooks meet the specifications of the National Curriculum Framework (NCF), a set of guidelines which ensures that learning happens in a manner that benefits the students. Making learning a joyful experience, developing a sense of self-reliance and dignity, child-centric approach and inculcating a feeling of oneness, democracy and unity in the students, are some of the focus of the NCF.

The decision comes after a series of meetings with the Ministry of Human resources Development  (MHRD), CBSE and NCERT.

Earlier this month the CBSE had issued a circular asking affiliated schools to raise indent for NCERT textbooks while also mentioning that adequate number of textbooks for all classes would be made available before the commencement of the academic session 2017-18.
