CBSE holds meeting with principals, students, parents

CHENNAI: A meeting to elicit responses from city students, parents, teachers, heads and management representatives on the issue of abolishing Class X Board examination was held here on Wednesday.

Anchored by Vineeth Joshi, chairman, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), the meeting was aimed at obtaining feedback from different stakeholders, according to some of those who attended the meeting.

Participants were given questionnaires to fill and they could express their genuine feedback without mentioning their name or their school's name, participants said.

One of the principals said that the CBSE was in the process of collecting responses from different regions.

"The discussions are at a very premature stage. Nothing has been decided yet," he said, on condition of anonymity.

However, to another principal, it seemed that the Board was also considering alternatives to Board examinations such as continuous assessment and even online examination. "Many of their questions were on what we thought of such alternatives. Some of the principals said that they feared it may make the system too complex."

The CBSE chairman is said to have anchored four rounds of meetings separately - one with the students, one with parents, one with principals and another, with management representatives.

Some principals were said to have doubted whether students in Tamil Nadu, who wish to switch to State Board in Class XI, would have difficulty if there were no Board examinations in Class X.

However, when contacted, the CBSE regional office said only an induction programme was held in the city, and the chairman may have casually enquired with principals and that it was not a meeting to discuss the Board examination.
