Discarding board exams not suitable for India: Kageri

 Speaking to presspersons here on Wednesday, he said that the concept of promoting the students to senior secondary through internal assessment is a western concept, which may not be a success in India.

“ We need Indian system of education. Some of the changes introduced by the Centre including common syllabus for science and mathematics are good moves which can be taken up on experimental basis,” he added.

With regard to controversy over the medium of instruction, he said that the issue is before the Apex Court at present. However, he said that talks will be held with Union Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal and Union Law Minister Veerappa Moily over the issue.

He said that minor changes in the system supporting the distribution of text books created chaos and private educational institutions should be held responsible for it.

“They had sent the DDs for the textbooks after the last date. They were under the impression that they will get text books free of cost as promised by some of the elected representatives. However, following the High Court order, as many as 7 lakh textbooks will be dispatched to respective schools within three to four weeks,” he added.

District BJP President Uday Kumar Shetty, CMC President Kiran Kumar and others were present.
