For the academic year 2023-24, the school education department will be printing more than 70,000 booklets and distributing the revised textbook changes to all government schools and schools with state board curricula.


Additionally, extra copies will be supplied to students for reference, explaining the changes made to the textbook syllabus for the current academic year. The department is aiming to distribute the booklets to the schools within the next 10-15 days, although the cost of printing was not given by the department. Kannada and Social Science changes were organised from classes 6 to 10.


The 'clarifications' pamphlet details the changes made by the Congress government after deleting several 'controversial' courses introduced by the BJP in 2022. The ruling administration opted to implement 18 changes from the textbook revision committee's 45 recommendations at its cabinet meeting last week.


Prof Rajappa Dalawai, Ravi Kumar, Prof TR Chandrashekar, Dr Ashwathnarayan, and Rajesh were in the textbook revision committee.


According to the Karnataka Textbook Society's list of adjustments, the Congress government has dropped a lesson on RSS founder KB Hedgewar and reintroduced 'Letter to my Daughter' by India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, translated by Siddanahalli Krishna Sharma.


Furthermore, the Congress government has dropped the works of prominent right-wing ideologues including Chakaravarthy Sulibele and Shatavadhani Ganesh from the Kannada language textbook for Class 10. While Sulibele's work 'Heroes of Mother India' finds no substitute, Ganesh's work has been replaced by that of writer Sara Aboobacker, who authored 'War'.


The Congress government has introduced additional chapters on 'Vedic Culture,' 'Rise of additional Religions,' 'Human Rights,' 'Women Social Reformers,' and 'Women Freedom Fighters' in the social science textbook for class six. The government has requested that the word "religion" be replaced with "dharma" in the chapter on "Important World Events."
