The Karnataka government is unlikely to go for a full revision of textbooks, with sources in the school education department saying only the controversial chapters introduced by the BJP government will be dropped for the current academic year.
In a meeting with Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday, former textbook revision committee head Baraguru Ramachandrappa suggested that a full revision of textbooks, especially of the Kannada and social science subjects, was not a “practical and viable” option for now. Ramachandrappa further suggested that only the controversial lessons be replaced with new ones. It was also suggested that a circular detailing clarifications and chapter replacements be distributed among schools for the current academic year. Some educationists say the chapter on RSS founder K B Hedgewar and works of right-wing ideologues like Chakravarthy Sulibele, Bannanje Govindacharya and others can be dropped.
