JAMMU, MAY 18: In continuation to its efforts towards the implementation of New Education Policy 2020, the Academic Division of Jammu & Kashmir Board of School Education on Saturday organised a one-day Consultative Meet here in the Conference Hall, JKBOSE, Rehari Colony] to deliberate and discuss the draft of J&K Curriculum Framework-Foundation Stage (JKSCF-FS). The administrators and teachers from different wings of the School Education Department participated.
JKSCF -FS is an adaptation of National Curriculum Framework-FS 2022 which focuses on the education of the five-year foundation stage that starts from Pre-school-I upto class II.
The meet was chaired by Prof. (Dr) Parikshat Singh Manhas Chairman JKBOSE. In his inaugural address, Prof Manhas laid stress on thorough deliberations on the JKSCF-FS draft by various stakeholders so that this document serves as a benchmark and guideline to frame all future education policies for ECCE. “JKBOSE has worked on the local contextualization of the NCF-FS to suit the specific needs of the students of the UT of J&K which carries a unique status because of its diversity and topography. It will be a perspicacious and progressive document, poised to revolutionize the educational panorama of Jammu and Kashmir. I appreciate the diligent and assiduous efforts of the experts whose concerted endeavors have yielded a curriculum that not only adheres to national benchmarks but also resonates profoundly with local exigencies. An effective approach towards the foundational stage of education shall go a long way in creating such a citizenry which shall be instrumental in realising the vision of Viksit Bharat by 2047,” he added.
The session commenced with an incisive introduction of the JKSCF-FS by Dr. Sudhir Singh, Director Academics. He elucidated that even though the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) crafted by NCERT stands as a paragon of comprehensiveness and vibrancy, the exigency for its local contextualization to address the distinctive educational nuances of the Union Territory (UT) of Jammu and Kashmir remains imperative. “The draft committee has judiciously worked on various aspects of this document, and the suggestions generated in this meeting will add further to its effectiveness,” he added.
