Mumbai: For the academic year 2017-2018, the Maharashtra State Bureau of Textbook Production and Curriculum Research, popularly known as Balbharti, had changed the entire syllabus of Class 7 and Class 9. After the delay in providing new textbooks to the students, another issue has now emerged — training the teachers. While the Class 7 training starts on Monday, Class 9 teachers are still clueless about their training process for the newly made syllabus.

While the first unit test for students will commence in the early week of August, Class 9 teachers are unsure about some of the language subjects. Some teachers said on condition of anonymity that subjects like Hindi and Marathi are the toughest. Despite this, they said no update has been given to them regarding their training process.

Furthermore, no paper pattern has been given to the schools by the state board or Balbharti, making it difficult for the teachers to design the question papers for the examinations. “They already delayed the textbooks, now they are doing the same with the paper pattern. Without the pattern, how would we prepare for the unit test that is approaching,” asked a teacher. Some of the teachers are being summoned to a place called Nemani at Nashik for the training process.
