Education system overhaul

In a bid to make classroom learning more interesting, the Department of Education, Government of Karnataka has overhauled the education system for standards I to IX in the state. Starting this academic year, schools will follow a trimester system and performance will be measured only in terms of grades. Music, dance, drama and yoga would be an integral part of the curriculum. I am a little skeptical that this system will work. By the looks of it, private schools don't appear to be bound to follow this system. In Government schools, when even basic education is not imparted properly, how can any one hope for a well-rounded curriculum being implemented?
