ICSE Board in Favour of No Detention Policy from Class VI

In the last week of October, at the Central Advisory Board for Education (CABE) meeting, a proposal to amend the ‘no-detention’ policy of the Right to Education Act was made. According to the recommendations, talks about reintroducing the pass-fail system class V onwards is in process. The Council for Indian School Certificate Examination (CISCE) seems to be in favour of the same.

The Chief Executive and Secretary of ICSE, Gerry Arathoon mentioned that they are in favour of a system that takes into account cumulative assessment system from classes VI to XII on the basis of CCE that is the comprehensive continuous evaluation.

He was of the opinion that once the cabinet approves the proposal made at CABE and takes steps to make amendments in the RTE, the above-mentioned plan will be put forth the council members for an implementation nod.

The council will also advise the affiliated schools to work on the same lines in view of the revisions made in the policy of no-detention from class VI, in order to maintain uniformity throughout.

Gerry added that the teachers will be trained accordingly so as to evaluate students basis their performance instead of just promoting them upto class VIII without any sort of detention.

It is important that all state governments agree on the same point so that a parity can be maintained in the functioning of schools under CISCE. He said so despite the fact that the council has no authority over the schools except for conducting examinations and granting affiliations.
