Central Board of Secondary Education going International

Updated on Mon, 12 December 2011 at 18:12 IST

CBSE is introducing new Curriculum called CBSE – i. This syllabus has got an international approach with more emphasis on practical and analytical learning than memorization. Anjali Chhabra, education officer at the CBSE in New Delhi told that subjects will have global perspective. For example history will have international approach rather than just Indian.

English literature will cover foreign authors along with Indians, ranging from Anita Desai to Franz Kafka to Leo Tolstoy. Previously Hindi, english and the native language was compulsory but now they can opt for a foreign language. Options could include French, Russian, Spanish, German and Portuguese. This will increase the visibility of students on the world map if they want to go abroad for higher studies. This will overcome the language barriers. The board’s international syllabus also includes extra-curricular activities like gymnastics, swimming, yoga and gardening, which were not available before.

Schools adopting the new Curriculum will have to bring a lot of changes in their infrastructure. It is still unclear what impact the introduction of program will have on students and school fees. I hope that it does not burden the parents as the salary is fixed and the cost of living is increasing. The increased fees may hamper the family budget. But change is for good and it should be welcomed with open hands. If we do not respond to change positively it is going to pull us back and we will be left behind.
