CABE recommends withdrawal of no-detention policy along with resuming CBSE Class 10 board exams


With the decision of revoking the No-Detention-Policy till class 8th and proposing to resume the class 10th board exams, Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) has been initiating to bring back the old-school norms with empathic norms.

With a long-due conference with the newly appointed CABE, the outcome placed the CABE with rescheduling the re-introduction of classes and challenging the no-detention policy, which has precisely affected the learning modules in several ways.

HRD Minister Smriti Irani, the director of the meeting, spoke that the decision will be taken after the Ministry has taken the topic into consideration and will work further after receiving some formal writings from various states.

She added, "All the state Education ministers unanimously appealed to revoke it (the policy). But all should give us in writing within 15 days to a month," stating the fact that any further steps might create a problem amongst the students and will confuse them in any manner possible.

"This is a part of the whole approach. One can't have a piecemeal approach. One has to have a holistic approach," she added.

The committee reports, "We need to stop, re-assess and then move forward. At this stage, it would be prudent to reiterate the need for assessment of the learning outcomes and make it consequential by linking it to promotion or otherwise to the next class beyond grade 5."
