Reviving Class 10th Boards under Review

A crucial day-long meeting of the highest advisory body on education began in Delhi today to consider reviewing the no-detention policy up to class 8 and reintroduction of class 10 board examinations.

This is the first meeting of the newly reconstituted Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) under the NDA governments being chaired by HRD Minister Smriti Irani, where the Women and Child Development Minister Maneka Gandhi suggested supplying of sanitary napkins in schools to reduce dropout rates among girls.

The suggestion was supported by several states and a commitment was given by the government at the meeting to implement it soon.
The meeting would also consider a proposal for extension of the Right to Free and Compulsory Education Act up to class 10 in the secondary level and to nursery in the pre-school stage.

On the agenda would be discussions on the proposed new national education policy where the states' participation is crucial.
State Education Ministers and secretaries along with academicians and nominated members of CABE are attending the meeting.
