(Source: Express photo by Avinash Srivastav) The Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) on Wednesday made a strong pitch for scrapping the no-detention policy for Classes I to VIII, along with bringing back board exams in Class X. The newly reconstituted CABE — the top body advising the government on education — held its first meeting Wednesday. At the meeting, the Geeta Bukkal sub-committee, set up by CABE to examine the no-detention policy, was tabled. The report bats for the reintroduction of detention in a phased manner. A government statement said there was a “broad consensus” on the issue, with states being “unequivocal” in suggesting the no-detention policy be revoked, and states and CABE members “unanimously” agreeing to do so. This in effect could mean that the scheme of automatic promotion in Classes I-VIII could come to an end. “All state ministers present at the meeting unanimously appealed to the Centre to revoke the policy. We have asked all states to give their views in writing in 15-30 days,” HRD Minister Smriti Irani said. The no-detention policy in classes was implemented as part of the Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) under the RTE Act to ensure holistic development of students. Both policies of no-detention and making Class X board exams optional were introduced after the enactment of the Act in 2010. Asked whether there was consensus on bringing back board exams in Class X, Irani replied in the affirmative and said it was part of the same process and “one cannot have a piecemeal approach”. She said states were in favour of scrapping the no-detention policy at one go, as they felt it adversely affected students’ learning. Both the scrapping of the no-detention policy and re-introduction of Class X board exams could require an amendment to the RTE, the sources added. – See more at: http://indianexpress.com/article/india/education/central-advisory-board-of-education-broad-consensus-on-scrapping-no-detention-policy/#sthash.iR5XElbL.dpuf
