Satish Dwivedi, recently appointed basic education minister said that all the state government-run primary and upper primary schools are gearing up to switch to the NCERT pattern from April 2020.
This recent development will replace the course material currently being taught in 1.59 lakh primary and upper primary schools across the state and will impact more than 15 million students studying in these schools.
Saying that directives have been issued to senior officials to begin work in this direction he said, “It has been observed that primary and upper primary students find their confidence-level low while competing with students from other boards. I believe that it is time to give our students an edge to excel in academics so they can give tough competition to students of other boards.”
The announcement has been made right after the UP Board Examination, 2019, was conducted according to the NCERT pattern.
