Royal Education Council is pleased to convey the endorsement of rationalized curriculum and revised instructional time by the tripartite meeting of Ministry of Education, Royal Education Council and Bhutan Council for School Examinations and Assessment held on March 27, 2019 for immediate implementation.
1. The curriculum rationalization is based on the recommendations of the Bhutan Education Blueprint 2014-2024, the National School Curriculum Conference 2016 and the resolution of the 19th National Education Conference. The existing textbooks were reviewed: irrelevant content were screened out, obsolete content replaced with updated information, and errors rectified.
2. In line with curriculum rationalization, instructional hours have been revised. All these changes shall be incorporated in the next editions/ reprints of the curriculum materials.
3. All schools are advised to note the changes and implement them accordingly.
