NEW DELHI: The government is going to introduce a four-year Bachelor in Education (B.Ed) course from next year with an aim to improve the quality of teaching, Human Resource Development Minister, Prakash Javadekar said here on Thursday.

 

"We are going to launch a four-year integrated course from next year. The standard  of teaching has gone down because it tends to be last option for those who join. This should be first choice. This should be a professional choice, not some leftover," Javadekar said while addressing principals of Kendriya Vidyalayas and Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas on the second day of the two-day conference.

 

The course, when implemented, will save one year of aspirants' since they can join it right after their Class 12, against the current system of first doing graduation and then the two-year B.Ed.

 

The Minister also said 15-20 states will be conducting examination from Class 5 to 8 after the scrapping of the no-detention policy, a part of the Right to Education Act in January.

 

The B.Ed course, in works for over a year, will be conducted in three streams - BA, BCom and BSc.
