PRINCIPLES OF D.A.V PUBLIC SCHOOL CURRICULUM
The D.A.V PUBLIC SCHOOL Curriculum gets its lead from National Curriculum Framework (NCF 2005) The paramount guiding principles as proposed by NCF-2005 are
connecting knowledge to life outside the school, ensuring that learning is shifted away from rote methods, enriching the curriculum to provide for overall development of children rather than remain textbook centric, making examinations more flexible and integrated into classroom life and, nurturing an over-riding identity informed by caring concerns within the democratic polity of the country.
According to NCF 2005 the greatest national challenge for education is to strengthen our participatory democracy and the values enshrined in our Constitution. Meeting this challenge implies that we make equality and social justice the central theme of curricular reform. Citizenship training has been an important aspect of formal education. Today, it needs to be boldly reconceptualised in terms of the discourse of universal human rights and the approaches associated with critical pedagogy. A clear orientation towards values associated with peace and harmonious coexistence is not only desirable but also essential. Quality in education includes a concern for quality of life in all its dimensions. This is why a concern for peace, protection of the environment and a predisposition towards social change must be viewed as core components of quality, not merely as value premises.
