SRINAGAR: Minister for School Education, Hajj and Auqaf and Tribal Affairs Chowdhary Zulfkar Ali on Wednesday said that the government is planning to bring in a new education policy which will regulate school curriculum, review teaching methods and regulate other related aspects.
The Minister expressed these views at a high level meeting, which was attended by Minister for Tourism Tassaduq Mufti, Secretary School Education Farooq Shah, Director of School Education, Joint Director State Institute of Education Kashmir, Principal DIETs and other concerned officers.
The Minister said that the policy will entail a proper monitoring system through which the department would not only assess the trainers, but could also review the effectiveness of these trainings among the students.
Zulfkar Ali said if the infrastructural work of the State gets delayed nothing gets delayed, but if a student is deprived of quality education, a cardinal sin is being committed.
Urging everyone to understand their roles, the Minister said it is important that everyone, especially our teaching staff understand their responsibilities and try teach their students through practical methods.
The meeting was informed that the present J&K Board of School Education follows the pattern of NCERT in terms of its curriculum.
Expressing his views, Tassaduq Mufti said books should be cumulative in nature. He said instead of having random chapters about English which include something about everything, there should be a gradual shift towards certain topic. He said it is better to face the weakness and focus on strengths so that better results could be achieved. He suggested that there is no need to follow NCERT like a holy book, instead concerned officials should explore other relevant options too.
