Kerala HC slams CBSE after class 10th students fail to write exams
The Kerala High Court slammed CBSE over a matter where 34 students of class 10 couldn’t sit for the Board examination. The students couldn’t sit for the Board examination as the school failed to register their names with the Board.
The Kerala High Court slammed The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) over a matter where 34 students of class 10 couldn’t sit for the Board examination. The students are from Arooja Little Star School located in Kochi. The students couldn’t sit for the Board examination as the institution failed to register their names with the Board.
The Kerala HC pulled up the CBSE for being irresponsible and stated that the Board should not play with the future of the students. The HC gave a final warning to the Board and slammed it for remaining silent over the matter.
To make sure that the year must not go wasted, the Kerala HC suggested the State government to allow the students from Arooja Little Star School- who were not able to write the CBSE class 10 examination because the school was not CBSE affiliated- to take the State Board (SSLC) examination. The State Board examination will begin on March 10, 2020.
On this suggestion, the State Government pleaded has pointed out that the students cannot sit for the examination because of the difference in the syllabus.
Earlier, CBSE had informed the HC that the school committed a mistake by allowing students to continue their education without gaining CBSE affiliation. The Board also made this clear that no school would be allowed to register students for class 9 without getting the Board’s affiliation.
The CBSE also claimed that the Arooja School could not fulfill CBSE affiliation criteria. Explaining further it added that to gain the affiliation, the school has already been asked to build a composite science and mathematics lab. The classrooms, library, and computer science lab are small in size. CBSE has also asked the School to procure at least 1,500 books in its library.
The Kerala High Court has asked the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) to submit a detailed affidavit on the concerned matter by Wednesday i.e. March 4, 2020.
