NEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party government's decision to reduce 25 per cent syllabus for classes 6 to 8 in Delhi will not cause any loss of learning to students, as skill based subjects will be incorporated and efforts will be made to "reuse" the deleted portions in a more constructive way, said government officials. "There is not going to be any loss of learning for students if the syllabus is going to be sacrificed for co-curricular activities like music, arts and theatre... Whatever portions will be deleted from the syllabus, are likely to be incorporated in "some form or the other" in the higher grades," said a senior official from the Directorate of Education.
