Maharashtra government to include compulsory self-defence classes in school curriculum

With this, we have decided to start mandatory self-defence training in schools,” he said.A senior official from the School Education Department confirmed to PTI that the state government is planning to bring self- defence as a part of schools’ curriculum in the state.He said the department was going through the raised issues on the online platform and they found merit in the petition.Therefore, the department was planning to seriously consider introducing the self-defence session in the curriculum.Read: CBSE Board Exam 2019: Class 10, 12 results to release early this year Read: Ancient language Maithili is on the verge of decline, government takes steps to revive its importancelast_img read more
