After introducing 'Happiness Curriculum' last year, the Delhi Government is planning to introduce 'Deshbhakti Curriculum' in government schools in the city. The said curriculum will be implemented from next year.
The 'Deshbhakti Curriculum' or curriculum on patriotism was announced by the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today.
Addressing a gathering, Delhi Chief Minister said that the purpose of education was three-fold - create good human beings, enable people to earn a living, and build patriotic citizens.
The government has already introduced the Happiness Curriculum which addresses the need to create good human beings, and Entrepreneurship Mindset curriculum which aims to equip students to earn a living.
The 'Deshbhakti Curriculum' will address the final objective of building patriotic citizens. The curriculum will teach children to feel proud on their country, take responsibility in solving problems plaguing the country, and will inculcate the spirit of sacrifice for the sake of country.
