Ministry of Education has invited suggestions on Draft National Curriculum Framework for School Education. The NCF brings to life the aims and commitments of the NEP. This includes the full range of human capacities, values and dispositions that are aimed to be developed in school education. It is integrative and holistic with equal status to all subjects and learning domains from Math to Sports. It integrates vocational education in all schools, and there is integration across subjects while developing rigorous subject understanding and capacities. The draft NCF aims to break the straitjacket of streams and recommends a bouquet of eight curricular areas each for Classes 9-10 and 11-12. In Classes 11-12, students can opt for any 16 choice-based courses from the eight curricular areas, to be covered over four semesters. The eight curricular areas are humanities, mathematics and computing, vocational education, physical education and sports, arts education, social science, science and interdisciplinary areas.For Classes 9-10, the annual schedule will be followed but two board exams for each year has been recommended.
