After Gujarat, Haryana State Government also decided to reduce the syllabus for the students of 9th to 12th classes. The education minister of Haryana, Kanwar Pal on Thursday made this decision on the syllabus reduction. The minister said, ‘The state government is taking this step to reduce mental pressure on students. The syllabus shall be reduced for these three classes in the present academic session of 2020-2021.’
The minister said all the schools remained closed across the nation due to the COVID-19 lockdown. As a result of the lockdown since March 2020, all the educational institutions were shut. Due to this, it’s has become a difficult task to conduct regular classes across schools. The Haryana state government has already made necessary arrangements to initiate online classes.
Besides imparting digital education, the Government has decided to lessen the mental pressure on students. Intending the students’ bright future, the government has planned to diminish the syllabus for the next academic session 2020-21. All the schools that are affiliated to the BSEH [Board of School Education Haryana] will follow the CBSE pattern, said the minister.
The education minister further said that the board has formed a committee to look after the syllabus reduction procedures. The new committee will partner with SCERT, Gurugram, and proposes the new syllabus within a week. The committee will consider all possibilities whilst reducing the syllabus. He said that the students of classes 9 to 12 have been taught the existing syllabus through online sessions. Those topics must be covered in the new syllabus, said the minister.
