The syllabus reduction will be including all the books related to sports, theatre, art and culture, music etc…. giving more details about the syllabus cut, Manish Sisodia said that the action plan is almost ready and by October the pan will be implemented. Along with this the government will be also be cutting of the syllabus even for higher classes – Class IX to XII, he added.
In an official statement issued by the government said that since they were thinking on the issue of making the lighter bags for the Delhi government kids, so the month of Octobers was thought to be the best month of cutting down the syllabi during an academic year.
However, soon after the syllabi cut announcement was made, the decision got a mixed response from various educationists and activists across the country. As for many the manner and speed of the plan’s execution is questionable.
On the other hand for many, the plan of cutting down the syllabi should only be implemented only on government schools. As one argues, that plan will certainly violate the constitution’s motto of giving equality of opportunity.
