Education Panel Endorses No Failing of students till class 8The sub-committee headed by Haryana Education Minister Geeta Bhukkal, constituted by Central Advisory Board of Education this year to look into the contentious issue of no-detention or not to fail students till class 8, has unanimously endorsed the policy but at the same time suggested “evaluation” of the schools and teachers.

The committee, which met here on October 10, has further suggested NCERT to compile the progress of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) scheme which is running in schools across the country and the model followed in different states, said sources.

The “no-detention” clause had become contentious after it met with opposition in some states leading to the constitution of the sub-committee.

The panel had also invited suggestions from the members of general public for effective implementation of CCE and no-detention provision. The sub-committee were unanimous on the view that no-detention does not mean no-evaluation in class.

In its second meeting, it also understood to have examined the final legislation to prohibit unfair practices in school education such as demanding donations for making admissions, overcharging of fees, not issuing written receipts for payments made by students.

The legislation also seeks to check misleading advertisements to cheat students and parents, employing unqualified or ineligible teachers, underpaying teachers and other employees and withholding of certificates and other documents of students who decide to migrate to other schools.

The legislation is expected to be put before the CABE meeting in November.
