The Maharashtra State Board has restructured and redesigned the syllabi to keep pace with the challenges of the changing world and bring it on par with the syllabi of other states.
The reframing of the syllabi of almost all the subjects ensures an adequate coverage of knowledge and information in accordance with the times and the age group of learners. It also ensures that a proper place is given to the culture, heritage, social reforms, life skills, student’s interest and needs, and that cognizance is taken of the very different abilities of students from heterogeneous backgrounds. An effort has been made to make the syllabi more futuristic and user friendly. The board has incorporated a constructivist approach that fosters critical thinking to create motivated and independent learners.
