Delhi Govt To Roll Out 'Deshbhakti' Curriculum And Open Delhi's First Sainik School
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday announced that the Delhi government will roll out the 'Deshbhakti' curriculum in all government schools and announced Delhi's first Sainik school.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday announced that the Delhi government will roll out the 'Deshbhakti' curriculum in all government schools from September 27 as a tribute to freedom fighter Bhagat Singh.
During his Independence Day address at the Delhi Secretariat, he also announced that the national capital will soon get its first Sainik School and a preparatory academy to groom children for the armed forces.
Over the last 74 years, students have been taught physics, chemistry, maths, history, geography and other subjects but not patriotism since it is assumed that they will develop a feeling of love for their country, Kejriwal said.
Kejriwal had announced the vision for the 'Deshbhakti' curriculum on the 73rd Independence Day in 2019.
On Saturday, the SCERT director presented a copy of the curriculum framework to Kejriwal. The framework of the 'Deshbhakti' curriculum submitted by a government-appointed panel was approved by the Governing Council of the State Council of Educational Research And Training (SCERT) on August 6. The curriculum will be rolled out on September 27 as a tribute to Shaheed Bhagat Singh, he said. The curriculum will not be based on rote learning and there will be no tests.
Kejriwal also said his government has begun preparations to give Delhi its first Sainik School. "Every state has its own Sainik School except Delhi. We have begun preparations to open Delhi's first Sainik School," he said.
