A sub-committee of Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) has recommended starting of pre-primary classes in government schools, introduction of board exams in Classes V and VIII and scrapping of the no-detention policy under Right to Education (RTE) Act to improve state-run schools in the country.
The committee, headed by Punjab Education Minister Daljit Singh Cheema, submitted its 189-page report to HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar Wednesday. Its suggestions will be discussed at the CABE meeting scheduled on October 25. CABE is the highest advisory body that advises the central and state governments on matters related to education.
While the recommendation of dropping no-detention policy has been justified on the ground that it has been “counterproductive”, introduction of board exams in Classes V and VIII has been suggested to “help children become goal oriented”. Students who perform poorly should be given remedial classes and be allowed to take the exam again, the report states. It has also called for strengthening of infrastructure in rural areas, behavioural and career councillors in schools, state-of-the-art facilities, and steps to tackle staff shortage.
