Monthly Newsletter | May 2023 | Volume 45
We are glad to present to you the May edition of School 360!
School system in India may undergo a major restructuring, as on Thursday, April 6, the Ministry of Education released the pre-draft of the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) for school education for public feedback on the recommendations, which will be finalised after further rounds of discussions involving the national steering committee led by former ISRO chairperson K Kasturirangan.
The NCF pre-draft on school education carries certain observations and suggestions. For instance, it says that stressing a lone piece of evidence, instead of exposing children to multiple contrasting pieces of evidence, throws up a “lopsided or inadequate picture” of a topic in social science textbooks. It says that many students have developed a fear of Mathematics in the current system. Methods of assessment in math have also encouraged rote learning and promoted the perception of math as “mechanical computation”, it says. The solution, the committee says, is a shift towards play, activity, discovery, and discussion-based learning.
In this edition, we have included these topics: NCF Draft 2023: What are the proposed changes, CBSE schools registering with EPFO to benefit teachers, staff, Right school set up to foster a learning environment, Where To Find A School PrincipalWhat Are The Duties Of A School Principal, And Types Of School Principals.
We hope you will find this edition of the newsletter informative and enrich us with your valuable feedback.

Finding the right key is the best solution
What do you think is the most difficult thing to obliterate from one's mind? Influence, right? And, this becomes even more difficult with children. So adults must definitely make sure that every child gets rightly influenced.
Even though teachers have a crucial role in influencing children's behavior, a School Principal plays a vital role in accomplishing this role of influence.
Who is a School Principal to a School?
School principals are considered the backbone of any academic institution. As their commands and decisions matter a lot, they are to be chosen carefully.
