SFI opposes change in curriculum
The Students’ Federation of India (SFI) has opposed the removal of important lessons on democracy and diversity from the curriculum of Class X, XI and XII students by the CBSE. The SFI alleged that ever since the BJP government came to power at the Centre, the party is more concerned in changing the history and science curriculum. The SFI said the CBSE had removed the chapters of nationalism, federalism and secularism from the syllabus of Class XI in 2020. However, due to opposition, this decision had to be withdrawn.
