Central Government Might Soon Have a Single National Board for School Education
The central government might soon come up with a single national board for schools by combining the CBSE, CISCE and other national boards. Streamlining the country’s education system was cited as the reason by union Human Resource Development minister, Prakash Javadekar. He made this statement on 12th June, on the occasion of the 15th convocation of University of Petroleum and Energy Studies.
This single board will focus only on board examinations, he said. Talking to the media, he further added, “We are working on developing a single board with single window system. The national board would conduct examination across the country. From affiliation to other necessary events, the board would be made capable enough to take decision on its own.”
