I want to know how CCE pattern is absorbed by schools, teachers, parents and students. On the surface, CCE looks lucrative with a scope to assess a child’s overall performance. But looking into the nitty-gritty, a child is made to work a lot, complete a lot of assignments, projects, concentrate on the extra-curricular activities, prepare for n number of tests – all at the same time. Would it make life easier for all of us if the assignments are planned in such a way that a child is required to submit for only one subject per day? And the way portions paper reaches the parents, it would be better if the assignment schedule also reaches well in advance. Too many tests with very less time for revision are adversely affecting the students. Teachers are left with no time to interact with the students but to deliver their syllabus in a mechanical manner. This is only a speck, there are more problems. Children who stay far away from the school are more taxed due to travel too. Ultimately, children don’t have time for anything, no play, no relaxation. Are we setting the trend right? There are n numbers of holiday homework. So the concept of holidays is getting eroded. Is this a good sign? Will we be able to create a young and healthy India? I request the teachers to discuss what is required from students to the level that how they should prepare for the tests and how they can score better. Rote learning does not help in CBSE. If a child has to apply, it should be given a scope of working and preparing. When all the time is gone for writing, how can that be achieved. I request a panel discussion on this and want many parents to participate and express their views.
