"The government is engaging with the state to mainstream children and use education as a tool to bring normalcy".

"The underlying principle is to converge so that children in J&K can interact with children from across the country and unnecessary apprehensions in the minds of people are dispelled", said a senior government official.

The human resource development ministry has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the department of school education of J&K government as part of measures which include exchange of 9,000-10,000 students between the state and the rest of the country to share experiences.

The Union government on Monday signed an agreement with the Jammu and Kashmir government for convergence of school curricula with that of central textbook production agency NCERT and a student-exchange programme.

The roadmap will be implemented in three years.

Under the exchange programme, almost 10,000 students from schools in Jammu and Kashmir will go on short-duration visits to other states while teams of students from other states will visit the country's northern-most state.

As the ministry attempts a nationwide experiment, Operation Digital Board, reminiscent of the revolutionary Operation Blackboard, where digital learning platforms will take over classrooms, J&K is set to receive special attention as it grapples with issues like lack of electricity. Chief had also suggested that a "major revamp" of the education system was need in the state. "The first batch of students is arriving in Delhi on January 18 and will attend the Republic Day celebrations on January 26", Anil Swarup, Secretary, School Education, said while addressing press at the meeting of Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE), on Monday. "For that we will also use solar energy platform", said Swarup.
