CBSE-model syllabus planned at government schools

CBSE-model syllabus planned at government schools

The State government will introduce a school syllabus which is on a par with that of ICSE and CBSE, from  the next academic year.

“It has come to notice that students who have studied State syllabus are scoring poor marks in the Common Entrance Test (for admission to professional courses). Hence, we are working on a syllabus which helps students gain knowledge equivalent to that provided by ICSE and CBSE syllabus,” Primary and Secondary Education Minister Kimmane Ratnakar said on Saturday.

He was speaking to reporters in Chikkamagaluru.

Ratnakar said that the textbook revision committee headed by Baragur Ramachandrappa was also framing the new syllabus.

He added that approval had been obtained from the State government for appointment of 9,500 teachers and the process of recruiting 7,500 teachers had already been completed.

Recruitment pending

The recruitment to remaining posts is pending due to pending court cases, which are expected to be settled in the next two months. A total of 12,700 newly recruited teachers would report for duty in the State by July. The recruitment of lecturers for pre-university colleges too would be completed by that time.

The minister said that according to the rule, block education officers should not serve at a place for more than three years and the deputy directors of public instruction shall not be allowed to function from a same place for more than two years. Moreover, they should not be posted to their native places also.

However, the officers had not been transferred for the six months in the wake of zilla and taluk panchayat elections. The transfers will be taken up after the completion of SSLC examination, he added.
