Biplab hints at going for major change in syllabus (6/11/2018) 
State government has decided to change the syllabus that was being used in schools for the past 15 years under the Left Front government. Chief minister, Biplab Kumar Deb, has said textbooks circulated by the Tripura Board of Secondary Education under the Left Front regime lean too much towards personalities like Karl Marx and Adolf Hitler. The chief minister regret that the textbooks have neglected Indian freedom fighters.Deb believes that “Hindu kings” will be forgotten by students, since the syllabus only focusses on personalities like Mao (Zedong). The new government wants students to focus more on Indian history, rather than ‘the Russian and French Revolutions, the birth of cricket in England and Nazism’. Deb plans to set up a committee to consider syllabus changes. Under this plan, schools will implement the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) syllabus while they will retain 10% of the state syllabus.The chief minister said: “When I say education, I mean quality education and not just numbers. The Communists only wanted the people of Tripura to study Mao (Zedong) and forget our Hindu kings. They removed Mahatma Gandhi from textbooks in government-run schools. I am going to implement NCERT syllabus in all these schools which will also have chapters on Tripura’s history”.Educationists believe that Deb’s recommendations are part of a larger pattern of saffronising and changing school curriculum to suit a particular strain of ideology.
