Include Astronomy in the school curriculum

This petition had 96 supporters

The astronomy education in our schools is abysmal. The physics NCERT textbook hardly has a chapter dedicated to Astronomy. Astronomy education is not only important for our future Astronomers and Physicists, but is also helpful for non-science majors as a proper working knowledge of our universe can help eliminate the widely prevalent beliefs in Astrology and other pseudosciences and will inculcate a spirit of scientific enquiry in them. Therefore it is a request to our policymakers particularly those in the HRD to look into this matter and introduce few chapters pertaining  to astronomy to our high school students and develop a proper mechanism so that they can familiarize themselves with popular astronomy softwares and tools.
