- I hope the new NCFSE will suggest how best to empower and enable the nation’s teachers. The framework should give teachers the flexibility to innovate to achieve the holistic development objective of NEP 2020.
- I am confident that NCFSE 2023 will be globally benchmarked to incorporate the best tenets and practices of international curriculums. For instance, the curriculum of ‘Studio School’, UK is worth emulating.
- I am expecting the new national curriculum framework to overhaul mathematics teaching-learning to banish maths phobia within students. NCFSE 2023 should also suggest experiential and practical teaching-learning pedagogies.
- Active parent-student-teacher engagement is the prerequisite of schooling success. NCFSE 2023 should provide guidelines on how to engage all students in shaping their learning trajectory. This would empower them to introspect, identify pathways for improvement and take charge of their own learning.
- NEP 2020 has mandated school curriculums to include local and indigenous knowledge systems. I am certain that the new NCFSE will suggest ways and means on how all schools can integrate this rich repository of traditional knowledge within the curriculum.
