Kasturirangan committee : Education Policy

  • 11/01/2019
  • The policy has been formulated by a 9-member committee headed by eminent space scientist K Kasturirangan.
  • The draft policy reportedly has recommended strict adherence to the three-language formula in school curriculum, a uniform syllabus nationwide for Science and Mathematics and promotion of skill education.
  •  It has also suggested development of a script in Devanagari for tribal dialects, pitching for developing a syllabus in local languages up to Class 5.
  • Kasturirangan committee, which was constituted by the ministry in June 2017 with a mandate to submit its report within three months, submitted a draft last month after missing several deadlines.
