Kochi: From the next academic year onwards, the NCERT textbooks for higher secondary classes will be published in Malayalam. The NCERT books in English will be translated to Malayalam.The translation of most of the books have been completed. The books will also be translated to Kannada and Tamil.
At present, more than 50 subjects are being taught in Higher Secondary classes.The decision comes after the Central government instructed that NEET can be given in regional languages.
However, there are widespread allegation that it is part of the move to change the teaching medium to Malayalam from English. The allegation comes from anxiety over the quality of the education.
KHSTU state president KT Abdul Latheef said that changing the medium of instruction will affect the attraction of the course.
Since the central government has not allowed yet to give NEET in Malayalam, many opposition teachers association are questioning the motive. For higher secondary examinations, questions are provided in Malayalam and English.
It is evaluated that more than 40 percent of the students in Humanities stream are giving the exams in Malayalam. In Science stream, the numbers are very less.
At present the students who writes exams in Malayalam are dependent on private publications. SCERT is of the stand that the books in Malayalam will be a solution.
Director Dr J Prasad said that those studying in English will also be benefitted by Malayalam translations.
Meanwhile, former curriculum committee member KT Abdul Latheef said that studying subjects including science in Malayalam will have adverse effect.
There are more than 50 entrance exams for higher studies after higher secondary education. All these exams can be given only in English. These might become difficult for those students who opt for Malayalam textbooks, criticisers said.

KochI: Higher secondary text books including science subjects will be available in Malayalam from next academic year onwards. The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) is aiming to translate them into Malayalam.
The textbooks will be made available in Kannda and Tamil also. The translation of most of the text books have been completed. At present, over 50 subjects are being taught in higher secondary schools.
The decision to translate the textbooks into Malayalam comes after a central government issued a directive that candidates can also write National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) in regional languages. However, there is criticism that the move is the first step towards changing the medium of study from English to Malayalam.
The critics point out that changing the medium of study will adversely affect the quality of education. Kerala Higher Secondary Teachers Union (KHSTU) state president K T Abdul Latheef said the curriculum will lose its appeal if the medium of study is changed.
Teachers associations are questioning the intent behind making textbooks available in Malayalam as NEET candidate as not yet allowed to write the exams in Malayalam.
At present, higher secondary question papers are available in English and Malayalam. It is observed that around 40 per cent of humanities students write their exams in Malayalam. However, not many science students opt for Malayalam.
Students who write the exams in Malayalam depend on private publications for study materials. NCERT believes that providing Malayalam textbooks would help solve the issue. Malayalam textbooks will help even those who study in English, said director Dr J Prasad.
However, making textbooks, including science subjects, available in English will do more harm than good, said K T Abdul Latheef, who was a member of the curriculum committee. There are 50 entrance exams for higher studies after plus two. They can only be written in English. These examinations will be tough for those who study in Malayalam, the critics added.
Kochi: The Central Board of Secondary Education will issue new guidelines to schools to reduce the burden on students. A circular will be issued to all schools in this regard.
Rescheduling school time and reducing the burden of learning are some of the guidelines. Demand to reschedule the school time is a long time demand from the parents and students. Hence, Union ministry for Human Resource Development will issue new guidelines regarding this.
The ministry will direct all states to allocate guidelines on the basis of the central criteria.
The action was taken as per the complaint on school time from many CBSE Schools.
In many schools, even 5-year-old students are forced to attend classes early morning. In many schools, classes commence at 7 in the morning. Thus, the new guidelines have given priority to reschedule school time.
Union ministry of Women and Child Development also raised the need to reschedule the school working hours. State Commission for Protection of Child Rights also received many complaints in this regard.
At the same time, in most of the CBSE schools, weight of the school bags was found to be double than the allowed weight. CBSE has informed the High Court, there are some practical issues to reduce the school bag weight.
Thus, the new guidelines will be issued by clarifying this matter.
The circular also directs to give awareness to parents not to compel teachers to give homework to students. Arrangements should be made in school to keep unnecessary study tools and books of students, noted the guidelines.
