Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) A reform in Indian Education
As a result of Government policy over reform in Indian Education system , the CBSE has introduced the new system Continuous Comprehension Evaluation to the secondary classes. Since then lot of feedback are coming to CBSE in contrast to the CCE pattern. The parents and general public are showing unsatisfactory to this present system. On the contrary, the eminent educationist are keep on advocating in favor of CCE system. The new reform in Indian Education is quite acceptable but it will take some time for the people to realize the importance of the system. So, CBSE has introduced a mentor programme to literate the teacher, students and common people of India over the present issue.
Why CCE is necessitate to acquire
In the past system, the students undergo severe stress and strain in the wake of competition. All parents want their child to be in the top ranking, that lead the child in strain. Everyone want their children to become Doctor , Engineer, Manager etc. There are lakhs of profession but leaving all those opportunities all are running behind these three options which is the deciding factor for high expectation. Making use of this huge demand of these courses, the private schools and universities earning huge money. If the children scores low marks and does not fulfilling their parents wishes or expectations then their relation breaks up.
