HRD Minister said “We are going to launch a four-year integrated course from next year. The standard of teaching has gone down because it tends to be last option for those who join. This should be first choice. This should be a professional choice, not some leftover.”
As per the reports, the National Council for Teacher Education, a statutory body responsible for coordinating teacher education has reworked on the curriculum. The B.Ed course will be conducted in three streams — BA, B.Com and B.Sc.
The new course structure when implemented will save one year of the aspirant. Aspirants can join the B.Ed course soon after they complete their class 12 against the current system, which allows the aspirants to take admission in B.Ed course only after completing their graduation.
“We lost 10 years of education because of the no-detention policy. It was a mistake. But now, about 15-20 states will start conducting exams from this year,” said HRD Minister Javadekar said.
