WCD Ministry: Home Science to be mandatory for Boys in Schools

Women and Child Development Ministry proposes Draft National Policy for Women 2017: Home Science and Physical Education to be mandatory for both Boys and Girls seeking Union Cabinet approval 

The Women and Child Development Ministry prepared a draft proposal seeking approval from Union Cabinet for making Home Science mandatory for boys in schools.

The Draft National Policy for Women 2017, approved recently by a group of Ministers has been sent to the Cabinet, according to the Ministry Spokesperson.

The draft makes several recommendations seemingly aimed at redefining gender roles starting at a young age, creating new employment opportunities for women as well as providing tax relief to them.

The draft policy proposes that the Human Resource Development Ministry redesign school curriculum to promote gender sensitivity as well as make Home Science and Physical Education compulsory for both Girls and Boys.

The proposal also offers tax relief to widows and divorced women.

The draft policy also recommends promoting women drivers for school buses, a move that is not likely to generate employment opportunities for women but also expected to curb sexual crimes against school students.

The last policy came in 2001 and is being revised after a gap of more than 15 years.
