More reforms expected in the primary and secondary education sector

The Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) meeting scheduled on January 15 in New Delhi is expected to take few crucial decisions in regard to the primary and secondary education sector. More reforms are expected in the primary and secondary education.

According to the sources, the meeting is expected to discuss various key issues including extending Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) to lower classes besides issues like digital initiatives in the school education system, strengthening the girls' education, etc.

According to the sources, the meeting is expected to discuss about assessment and implementation of CCE in the context of No Detention Provision (under RTE Act, 2009), Extension of the Right of Children to free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 to Pre-School Education and Secondary Education, Issues and Impediments to Mainstream Out of School Children and Measures to bring them into the fold of Education System, Issues of Girls' Education, Improving the Quality and Accountability in School Education, Digital Initiatives in School Education & Literacy and Physical Education.

The CABE is the highest decision-making body within the union ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD).

According to the sources, the meeting is expected to discuss various reform proposals in the primary and secondary education sector with the idea of improving the school enrollment and participatory education. "Another key issue which will be discussed would be implementing uniform curriculum for all the board students. Presently there are a number of complaints that state board syllabus is inferior. This is the biggest obstacle to creating a level playing field for all the students. There is a demand for one nation-one board in line with one nation-one examination scheme. Even though the one nation-one board concept is not practical, we are really concentrating on building a common syllabus for all the board students," explained an officer from the MHRD.
