Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala government proudly announced on Monday that it is the only state in the country to have compiled all the portions omitted by the NCERT (National Council of Educational Research and Training) from school textbooks. They have used these compiled portions to create a new textbook for students to study and use for exams. V Sivankutty, the State General Education Minister said that this decision aligns with Kerala’s outstanding educational history.
Sivankutty said the policy has not been completely accepted in the country as Tamil Nadu has rejected it in entirety and Karnataka has only agreed to implement some portions of it.
“So, we compiled all the deleted portions and created a new textbook. It is not a mere textbook, but a syllabus which students can study and take exams on,” he said.
The supplementary textbooks were released by Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in August this year.
While releasing the books, Vijayan had strongly criticised the NCERT for its omission of key portions from school textbooks and said that the move was with the political intention of creating a society rooted in hatred and animosity.
