Deshbhakti curriculum for Delhi govt schools from the upcoming session


After a review meeting, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who also handles the education portfolio announced that the new curriculum will start in the next academic session.


Nationalism may be in the veins of Indians but an educated view of nationalism makes the nationalists more responsible. Perhaps with this vision, the Delhi government has announced that it will launch the Deshbhakti curriculum for the 2021-22 academic session.


Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia said on Monday that "the biggest gap in our education system is that it seeks to deliver knowledge but not wisdom. Deshbhakti Curriculum shall strive to bring wisdom at the center of education discourse".


Sisodia said that the new curriculum will be helpful to mitigate unemployment. He added that " skilling is the only way to tackle the problem of unemployment". The new curriculum will be rolled out in the upcoming academic session. It will be for students from KG to VIII.


Explaining the very idea of this curriculum, the Delhi government says that " The curriculum shall comprise themes related to understanding self, family, school, community/society, nation, and world. Different methodologies and pedagogies would be applied, including storytelling, group work, mind mapping, role plays, and group reflection activities".


Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal had first announced the Deshbhakti Curriculum on the eve of Independence Day 2019. The government had formed a five-member committee to help draft the Deshbhakti Curriculum. The committee is assisted by the Delhi government school teachers, principals, and other members of education training centers.
