The nod for education reforms by the Central Advisory Board of Education has brought a wave of happiness and enthusiasm among school principals and academicians.
According to the plan, the schools affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), New Delhi, will implement the grading system from the current academic session and the optional Class X exams from the next session.
School principals in the city view this as a healthy development stating that the changes in the education system will ensure all round development of children while the teachers will have to be more responsible.
Harmeet Kaur Waraich, principal of Nankana Sahib Public School, Gill Road, said: “The Class X Board exams have been made optional for senior secondary schools. Students who wish to continue in the same school in Class XI can opt to go through comprehensive and continuous evaluation in the school. This will give students freedom to learn in a better way. The step will go a long way in de-stressing students as the fear of Board exams is over now.”
