Lessons are being drawn from different State boards: Vineet Joshi

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is working closely with the State Government in developing and implementing the Continuous and Comprehensive Education (CCE) for the State Board schools.

“We are constantly in touch with the State government and officials in the School Education Department to share good practices in the implementation of the system in the State. I explained to the officials a few ago why we have done what we have done,” said Vineet Joshi, chairman, CBSE.

Speaking on the sidelines of the 18 National Annual Conference of Sahodaya Schools, Mr. Joshi said the CBSE is also drawing lessons from the different State boards. “We are trying to understand how sports programmes can be developed and successfully implemented, looking at initiatives of the Kerala, Haryana and Karnataka State boards,” he said.

Last year, the Tamil Nadu government became the first State to issue an order that they would not have any problems in accepting students from CBSE schools in Class XI who have gone have been evaluated in the CCE system. In an attempt to bring down the burden on students, the Tamil Nadu government adopted the CCE system earlier this year, and recently issued orders to print textbooks with portions for each term separately.
