The State Board Curriculum in Maharashtra Schools
By Madhurie Singh, November 18, 2012
Schools and colleges in Maharashtra state have acknowledged that the curriculum of State board has a huge scope to improvement. That's the wonderful news you must have read on 15th November 2012 newspapers.
Well, its good news as accepting is the first step towards change.
The next step is to make the changes in the curriculum and bring it closer to the other national board course contents.
I just hope it it done from class 5 onwards instead of class 9! Suddenly overloading is never a great idea. It will be beneficial for the students when they gradually learn the entire load than in just 2 classes.
But kudos to the government for taking the first step and hats off to the schools to be willing to adapt and adopt the new syllabus.
Yes there will be a lot of teething troubles for the schools and parents and the teachers to bear with. But every new thing starts just like this unless it is well planned and thoughtfully executed. But I guess in this case the start was more crucial.
As of now the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Education (MSBSHSE) has upgraded the sullabus of physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics for class 12. So the students of SSC schools will now be able to compete with the students on CBSE and ICSE at par in All India competitions.
