The periodic table, democracy, and energy sources will no longer be covered in the NCERT textbooks provided to Class 10 students by the government. As part of a “rationalisation” intended to lessen the “burden on students,” entire chapters on the subjects have been eliminated as of late.
Early this year, serious concern was raised when the idea of evolution was removed from the Class 10 curriculum. Newly published textbooks from the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) have revealed additional changes, including one to a chapter on the periodic table.
Chapters on sustainable environmental practices and energy sources are among the subjects that were removed from the science textbook. Following the most recent revision, entire chapters on democracy, challenges to democracy, and political parties were also removed for Class 10 pupils.
