From this academic year, the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (MSBSHSE) syllabus for Class X has been changed. With the aim of bringing the standard of SSC schools at par with other boards such as CBSE, the board has included certain portions from the CBSE syllabus. Sardar Dastur Hoshang Boys' School on Monday started its three-day workshop for the teachers of English Medium PMC schools to educate them about these changes in the syllabus.
Last year, the MSBSHSE had made a change in the Class IX syllabus. This year, it has been carried forward to Class X as well. Lily Patel, principal, Sardar Dastur Hoshang Boys' School said that the main aim of the board at changing the syllabus was to improve the quality of the state board's education. The board had recently conducted a seminar for teachers from across Maharashtra where they were told about the changed syllabus and were also told about new and innovative methods of teaching.
"Four teachers from English medium Schools from Pune had been sent for the workshop that had been conducted by the board at Kokamthan near Shirdi as resource persons. Now, these four people are training around 100 teachers from different English medium schools. The training for science will be conducted in St Vincent's School," said Lily Patel, principal.
On the major changes that have been made in the syllabus, Pallavi Bhosle, a teacher of SNBP School and Junior College, Yerwada said, "The main changes have been made to make the students better prepared for different entrance and competitive exams. A few multiple choice questions have been introduced for the first time on the lines of the competitive exams. It is a very good move by the state board."
