A new assessment framework for science, mathematics, and English was released by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) on Wednesday, 24 March 2021. The framework aims to improve the existing school education system in the country for classes 6th to 10th.
The selected Kendriya Vidyalayas, Navodaya Vidyalayas, UT Chandigarh, and private schools across the country will participate in the first phase. The program will be made available to all 25000 CBSE schools in India by 2024. The Central Board of Secondary Education has launched a new framework in association with the British Council.
An official said, “The CBSE has collaborated with the British Council and three UK agencies— Cambridge, NARIC and Alphaplus—which are helping us in attaining our objectives. The new framework aims to replace the existing rote learning model.”
“The core objective of the National Education Policy is to guide the transition to an education system that enables our youth to have a better future”, said the Union Minister of Education, Dr Ramesh Pokhriyal. Over 100 comic books were also launched by the minister that are created by the teachers of CBSE-affiliated schools and curated by NCERT. These comic books are made up of 16 subjects so far.
