  Sep 06, 2023

National Curriculum Framework (NCF) and Recent Changes 2023-24


What is the National Curriculum Framework (NCF)?

The NCF is a guide for school education, providing principles, goals, structures, and elements for the development of curricula. It outlines the standards for school systems, but individual states can determine their priorities based on this.
 

Is the NCF the curriculum itself?

No, the NCF is not the curriculum but a framework to develop curricula. It sets the overarching guidelines, while the specifics of syllabus, content, teaching materials, and assessment are developed at the state level.
 

Why was the NCF created?

The NCF brings coherence and unity to school education across states in India. It upholds the country's federal structure and gives common principles derived from the constitutional vision, educational research, and experience.
 

Is the NCF prescriptive in nature?

No, the NCF provides detailed guidelines and best practices, but it is not prescriptive. While it provides specific examples to ground its principles, schools have the flexibility to choose and develop their practices based on the given principles.
 

How does the NCF address resources in schools?

The NCF is designed for implementation with the resources schools currently possess. It advocates for the necessary resources but also emphasizes starting the changes without waiting for perfect conditions.
 

What about subjects like arts in the NCF?

The NCF emphasizes the importance of arts, putting it on par with subjects like mathematics. It suggests practical ways of training current teachers to instruct in the arts, ensuring the subject's integration even if dedicated arts teachers are unavailable.
 

Has the NCF made changes to board exams?

The media has widely covered the NCF's suggestions for board exams. While the framework addresses the importance of moving away from a sole focus on testing, it also delves deep into various aspects of school education.
 

Who develops the NCF?

The ministry of education (MoE) is responsible for releasing the NCF, with input and development from a group of experts and stakeholders.
 

What does 'curriculum' mean in the context of the NCF?

The NCF looks at curriculum in a broad sense, encompassing the entire school experience, including learning goals, pedagogical practices, teaching materials, school culture, and more.
 

What impact will the NCF have on school education?

The NCF aims to influence multiple facets of school education. By guiding the development of state curricula, it aspires to bring about positive changes in teaching practices, student learning experiences, and the overall quality of school education in India.
 
In the ever-evolving landscape of education and curriculum development, it's imperative for institutions and students to stay informed. As the NCF reshapes the way we approach schooling, resources and guidance from educational channels and coaching institutions, such as SriramsIAS, will play a pivotal role in ensuring we bridge the gap between policy and practice.
