Recent Trends in School Geography in India
Alam, Sarfaraz
Journal of Geography, v109 n6 p243-250 2010
This article critically examines the recommendations of two major Indian education reports--NCFSE 2000 and NCF 2005--prepared by the National Council of Educational Research and Training in India. The NCFSE 2000 has recommended an integrated teaching of geography as one component of the social studies. The NCF 2005 has reverted to the pre-NCFSE 2001 framework, wherein all subjects under the banner of social studies would now be taught independently. These conflicting reports, and additional disagreement over the teaching of "local" Indian versus "world" geography, are investigated regarding their implications for teaching geography to Indian students. (Contains 3 notes.)
