Reforms in Education
Kapil Sibal's eagerness to reform the educational system deserves welcome. At the same time, he must be cautious not to undo time-tested tools. Students have got used to Board examinations after 10th standard and after plus two. It is true and unfortunate that some students allow the Board pressure to overwhelm them. Such students are few and far between. This certainly is no reason for scrapping the Board exam after 10th. The minister may concentrate on making education more interesting and creativity-provoking.
