Rajasthan School Curriculum 2020-21: The impact of Coronavirus on the entire human society is unlike anything that the present generation has ever seen. It, therefore, becomes important to include chapters on the matter in the school curriculum to help the students understand the challenges posed by the virus and how society came together to fight it out. The Health Minister of the State Government of Rajasthan, Mr. Raghu Sharma has suggested that a chapter on Coronavirus and the challenges faced by the society must be included in the school curriculum.
He was interacting with the media when he stated that, “Students should be made aware of the times we went through during the lockdown. This was the first pandemic outbreak reported in the world in over 100 years and hence its documentation should be done for the coming generations to remain prepared for future challenges which we wish should never come.” He further added that “Had the Spanish flu reported in 1920 been documented and a book available on it, we could have learned the tips and tricks to fight the health challenge. Now, we need to have books for the newer generation to know how we fought the COVID-19 epidemic and how society combated the challenge unitedly and stayed in lockdown for months.” Check | NCERT Solutions: Complete Solutions For Class 9 to 12 And NCERT Solutions PDFs
