Common National body to be a part of State Education Boards

Till date, it was observed that the State Board Education was controlled only by the board members, but now there have been allegations claiming that the Human Resources Minister will also be a part of maintaining the Board. He will be a central regulator for all of the boards. It was also seen that only the CBSE boards had the part take of a state government regulator.

The final draft of the National Education Policy has asserted that a regulatory board will be formed under the Minister of Education for the accession, regulation and evaluation of all the school boards in the country in terms of their norms and standards. It also makes sure that the necessary assessment pattern is followed, which is required in today’s time and in agreement with the objectives as stated by Nation Education Policy.

The final draft of the new National Education Policy shall now be brought about to the attention of the Union Council for their approval. However, it is seen that now there might be some “last-minute edits as well”.

According to the final draft, there might be some changes which includes that the board examination might be much simpler than those which were conducted earlier. When saying that it might be much simpler, it doesn’t imply that there will absolutely be no test. This means that the exam will be made to such an extent where it will test the core potential of the students than months of tuitions and learning by heart all of the concepts.

It is also seen that any of the students who make even the slightest of efforts in school class will be able to pursue good marks in the correspondent subjects without actually putting in too much of efforts.

The draft of the National Education Policy was submitted by the former Indian Space Research Organization Chief K.Kasturirangan to the Union Human Resources Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriya after he took responsibility. It was also put in the presence of the public domain for its feedback and suggestions.

The existing National Education Policy was framed in 1986 and was revised in 1992. A brand new schooling coverage was also a part of the Bharatiya Janata Social gathering’s manifesto forward of the 2014 common election.

The drafting consultants also took into consideration the report of the panel headed by the former Union Council secretary T S R Subramanian and shaped by the Human Resources Development Ministry when it was being headed by Union Minister Smriti Irani.

The state Board of Education is intended to serve as an unbiased source for the education, focusing on the big picture, articulating on the long term vision and needs of the public education. India has primarily 4 boards of school education namely, CBSE, ICSE, State Boards and IB.
