Introduction to Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya scheme :

National integration should inform the activity of the Government and the people alike. One way of bringing this about is to orient the education of boys and girls towards integration at an early age. One important vehicle of integration is the curriculum adumbrated in the New Education Policy. The core curriculum would naturally and inevitably contain inputs from all regions all the country and contribution from the states in ample measure. In mobility of students across the country is another crucial factor. Another important measure is the opportunity afforded to students at an impressionable age, to live and learn along with their peers from states other than their own and to get acquainted with, and motivated by experiences of National Integration in action. It has been well accepted that children with special talent or aptitude should be provided opportunities to proceed at a faster pace than others. Such children are in fact found in all section of people and in all areas including the backward. However, good quality education has been available only to well-to-do sections of society, the poor have been left out. Keeping in view these considerations, the Education Commission (1964-66) had recommended selection of a certain percentage of schools as pace setter institutions. But due to the reasons it is not practicable to select schools, institutions within the existing system for a pace-setter improvement program and therefore :- in accordance to the National Policy of Education (1986) Government of India started Navodaya Vidyalaya (Presently known as Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya) on an average one in each district, during the seventh five year plan. The constituted board for the purpose, aims for establishing of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas are to serve the objective of excellence to develop their full potential and facilitate the process of school improvement. Future Expansion Plans : 1. In His telecast to the Nation on 22 March, 1998, Honorable Prime Minister of India Proposed twenty fold expansion of Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya scheme. 2. Proposed to cover 593 District during 10th Plan. 3. Award to the Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas in the CBSE public examination as well as to the outstanding teachers of the JNVs for their meritorious services to the children and to the Nation. As per Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya scheme, at present 595 JNVs are running all over India i.e 27 states and 07 Union territories.
