In order to challenge the single judge order which has been passed in order to mandate the schools that are affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education, the CBSE Board is known to have filed an appeal with the Madras HC. As per the filed appeal, the CBSE Board aims to challenge the order passed for the CBSE affiliated schools in order to adhere to the books as well as the syllabus that has been prescribed by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT).
As per the prescribed changes, earlier it was proposed that the NCERT syllabus, as well as the books, should be considered as well as no kind of homework should be given to the students till Grade 2.
CBSE Files Appeal To Prescribe NCERT Books & Syllabus
After the submission of the appeal in context to the prescription of the NCERT Books and syllabus in the CBSE affiliated schools which was admitted recently, a division of the bench of the Justices at the Madras High Court where the appeal has been filed, has further passed an order so as to issue a notice. This has been ordered to the National Council of Educational Research and Training. The NCERT Centre has been directed to file a counter latest by August 6, 2018.
Whereas, it should be noted that the appeal which has been filed by the Central Board of Secondary Education is only against the direction which has been passed in order to prescribe the NCERT books as well as syllabus for the schools that are affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education and not against the order that homework should not be given to the students till Class 2.
No other books that are published by the private publishers should be prescribed in the schools except for the National Council of Educational Research and Training books and syllabus is proposed.
No Homework For Students Till Grade 2 | Know Here
Earlier, following a filed plea, a direction was passed that no amount of homework should be given to the students till Class 2 as well as the books and syllabus that have been provided by the council solely, should be used and followed.
After this, the Central Board of Secondary Education moved to the High Court and thus challenge the decision of prescribing only the National Council of Educational Research and Training books and syllabus for the students studying in the schools affiliated to the CBSE Board.
