NCERT to promote creative arts in schools

Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI: To integrate creative arts into school curriculum and promote it as a medium of teaching, the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has now established the Department of Education in Arts and Aesthetics.

With the Department in place, the NCERT feels that the main challenge would be for schools to find appropriate space for arts to integrate it into the learning as well as teaching process. As a follow-up of the recommendations put forward, the NCERT has also constituted a syllabus committee for developing the syllabus for different stages. The NCERT also plans to design textbooks for theory papers in visual and performing arts for the higher secondary stage for the first time.

The executive committee of the NCERT had approved the formation of the Department in June this year.
