नौनिहालों की शिक्षा का ‘आधार’ तय करेगी सीबीएसई
मेरठ : डिजिटल इंडिया के अंतर्गत पूरे सिस्टम को ऑनलाइन करने की दिशा में तेजी से बढ़ रही केंद्रीय माध्

मेरठ : डिजिटल इंडिया के अंतर्गत पूरे सिस्टम को ऑनलाइन करने की दिशा में तेजी से बढ़ रही केंद्रीय माध्यमिक शिक्षा बोर्ड (सीबीएसई) ने ऑनलाइन एफिलिएटेड स्कूल इंफॉर्मेशन सिस्टम (ओएसिस) को लागू कर दिया है। इसके अंतर्गत जहां स्कूलों से करीब डेढ़ सौ वर्गो में पूरी जानकारी ऑनलाइन मांगी जा रही है, वहीं सीबीएसई चेयरमैन राजेश कुमार चतुर्वेदी ने स्पष्ट कर दिया है कि शिक्षण व्यवस्था को पूरी तरह से पारदर्शी बनाने और कार्यालयों में ‘पेपर लेस’ कार्यवाही के लिए हर स्कूल को यह जानकारियां सीबीएसई को मुहैया करानी होंगी। शांति निकेतन विद्यापीठ में गुरुवार को शुरू हुए चार दिवसीय सीबीएसई नॉर्थ जोन बैडमिंटन चैंपियनशिप 2016 का शुभारंभ करने पहुंचे राजेश कुमार चतुर्वेदी ने सीबीएसई की कई योजनाओं के बारे में विस्तार से बताया।

कक्षा एक से बनेगा आधार डाटा

सीबीएसई आधार मेकिंग सेंटर का रजिस्ट्रार बनने जा रहा है। इस कड़ी में हर सीबीएसई स्कूल को आधिकारिक तौर पर आधार नंबर रजिस्ट्रेशन सेंटर बनाया जाएगा। कक्षा एक में दाखिला लेने वाले बच्चों का आधार डाटा कैप्चर किया जाएगा। यही डाटा उस बच्चे के 10वीं व 12वीं की बोर्ड परीक्षा के अलावा सभी प्रतियोगी परीक्षाओं में इस्तेमाल किया जाएगा। स्कूल बदलने पर केवल स्कूल कोड अपडेट कराना होगा। केवल पता स्कूल स्तर पर बदला जा सकेगा। बाद में डाटा में परिवर्तन की कोई गुंजाइश नहीं रहेगी।

हर कक्षा पर सीबीएसई की नजर

सीबीएसई से मान्यता मिलने के बाद भी स्कूलों में कक्षा आठवीं तक मनमाने ढंग से किताबें लगाकर पढ़ाया जा रहा है। बोर्ड हर सीबीएसई स्कूल में कक्षा एक से 12वीं तक की गुणवत्ता का निरीक्षण करेगा। स्कूलों में शुरू से ही सीबीएसई द्वारा जारी किताबें ही लगानी होंगी। आठवीं तक की गुणवत्ता खराब होने के कारण ही नौवीं के बाद या उच्च शिक्षा में बच्चों का प्रदर्शन बेहद खराब होता है। मानकों पर खरे न उतरने वाले स्कूल मान्यता से बाहर होंगे।

सीसीटीवी वाले स्कूल ही बनेंगे परीक्षा केंद्र

ओएसिस के अंतर्गत करीब 150 वर्गो में ली जा रही स्कूलों की जानकारी का इस्तेमाल बोर्ड की ओर से परीक्षा में किया जाएगा। बोर्ड परीक्षा केंद्रों का निर्धारण जिला स्तर पर नहीं बल्कि बोर्ड की ओर से ऑनलाइन साफ्टवेयर के जरिए किया जाएगा। साथ ही बोर्ड ने स्पष्ट कर दिया है कि बोर्ड परीक्षा केंद्र उन्हीं स्कूलों को बनाया जाएगा, जहां सीसीटीवी कैमरे लगे होंगे।

सर्टिफिकेट के डाटा नहीं बदले जाएंगे

सीबीएसई चेयरमैन ने स्पष्ट कर दिया है कि बोर्ड के पास वर्तमान में व्याप्त करीब 37 हजार परिवर्तन आवेदनों में कोई कार्रवाई नहीं होगी। बच्चों की उम्र घटाने-बढ़ाने के खेल को बंद करने के लिए ही ओएसिस के अंतर्गत बोर्ड परीक्षा फार्म में माता-पिता के हस्ताक्षर कराए जा रहे हैं, जिससे बाद में नाम में कोई परिवर्तन न किया जा सके। ऐसे परिवर्तन अक्सर गैर कानूनी इस्तेमाल के लिए कराए जा रहे हैं।

प्रतियोगी परीक्षा में लगेंगे अंगूठे

नीट, नेट, जेई्रई, मेडिकल जैसी तमाम प्रतियोगी परीक्षाओं में फर्जी अभ्यर्थियों को रोकने के लिए सीबीएसई के सभी 1600 परीक्षा केंद्रों पर अब परीक्षार्थियों का एडमिट कार्ड चेक करने की बजाय उनके अंगूठे का स्कैन किया जाएगा। यह स्कैन स्कूलों में बने आधार से मिलान किया जाएगा। अभ्यर्थी सही होने पर ही उसे परीक्षा में बैठने की इजाजत मिलेगी।

तीन दिन में मिलेगा रिजल्ट

प्रतियोगी परीक्षा के केंद्रों पर अब अभ्यर्थियों के ओएमआर स्कैन कर ऑनलाइन सिस्टम के जरिए डाटा सीबीएसई तक पहुंचेगा। विशेष साफ्टवेयर से ओएमआर स्कैन कर रिजल्ट तैयार किया जाएगा। तीन दिन के बाद परीक्षार्थी का ओएमआर और सर्टिफिकेट की एक कॉपी उसके डिजिटल लॉकर में रखे दिए जाएंगे। हर परीक्षार्थी तीन दिन बाद स्वयं ही अपने रिजल्ट डिजिटल लॉकर में देख व प्रिंट कर सकेंगे।

2018 में 10वीं की बोर्ड परीक्षा

दसवीं में स्कूल बेस्ड को हटाकर बोर्ड बेस्ड किए जाने की अटकलों पर सीबीएसई चेयरमैन ने स्पष्ट कर दिया कि इस वर्ष नौवीं में पढ़ रहे छात्र साल 2018 में बोर्ड परीक्षा में शामिल होंगे। उन्होंने कहा कि समय-समय पर नए विषय लागू किए जाने की दिशा में सीबीएसई मूल शिक्षा से विमुख हो गई है। बच्चों की मूल शिक्षा के साथ मूल्यों की शिक्षा पर ध्यान देने की जरूरत है। अंग्रेजी विषय में 90 या 100 नंबर पाने वाले बच्चों की खराब गुणवत्ता पर चेयरमैन ने कहा कि इसके जिम्मेदार शिक्षक व प्रधानाचार्य हैं, जिन्होंने अपने स्कूल के नंबर बढ़ाने की होड़ में अधिक से अधिक नंबर देने शुरू किए। इसे सुधारना भी स्कूलों को ही पड़ेगा।

CBSE Class 12 Board Exam 2016: Economics Paper Analysis

The Economics paper of CBSE class 12 board exam 2016 was conducted on 31st March 2016. While all the main subject papers for the CBSE Board Examination were conducted in the first phase, students were quite relieved to have the Economics Paper be placed in the later half. Considering that Economics is one of the main subjects for CBSE12th class students of all the three streams and is deemed as a scoring paper, students were happy to have additional preparation time for it.

The general sense among the students emerging out of examination halls after the CBSE Economics Paper 2016 was of happiness and relief. The majority of students termed the paper as balanced with equal weightage to different sections, topics, chapters. Most of the questions contained in the CBSE Economics paper were average in nature with only a few being difficult.

Numerical Questions

While the majority of the students were elated about the general design of the CBSE 12th Economics Paper, a few had complained about the numerical section. The 2 and 4 mark questions from numerical sections were deemed to be slightly tricky and, therefore, consumed more time to solve. But despite the lengthy nature, students seemed fairly confident about handling the numerical section with ease, as they saved quite a bit of time in the other sections.

No school bags till class II: MoS HRD Upendra Kushwaha

New Delhi: The CBSE has directed schools affiliated to it to ensure that students do not carry school bags till class II and also to restrict the number of books to be prescribed in classes I-VIII, Minister of State for Human Resource Development Upendra Kushwaha told the Lok Sabha on Monday.

In a written reply to a question, he said both the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) and the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) have taken several measures to reduce curriculum load and the weight of school bags.

“In its latest circular dated September 12, 2016, it has advised schools to take all possible measures to keep the weight of school bag under control,” said the Minister. 

He said that the NCERT has not recommended any textbook for early childhood education, while only two books for classes I & II and three books for classes III to V have been recommended.

“The Government has also launched a platform for showcasing and dissemination of all digital and digitisable resources for its stakeholders in collaboration with the NCERT,” said the Minister, adding that the NCERT has made available all their textbooks and other teaching-learning material for free access on its website.

General opinion of students who had appeared for CBSE Class 12 Physics Board Exam 2016

According to a few students, the paper consisted of several direct questions, easy numerical sets as well as straight forward derivations questions. Moreover, the number of numerical problems in the entire paper was cut-down to include more theoretical questions.

The feeling among the students was reiterated by many academicians as well, who termed the paper as one of the easiest CBSE Physics paper in the last 7 years. Some CBSE teachers attributed the drastic change in the Physics Paper design to the much hue and cry over the physics paper last year.

Considering the easy nature of the 2016 paper, the difficulty level of CBSE Class 12 Physics Board Exam 2017 is expected to be normal.

CBSE asks schools to restrict teacher’s role only to academic work

Delhi: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has directed all its affiliated schools to restrict the role of teachers involved in non-academic work by issuing new operational guidelines. Earlier rules allowed private schools affiliated to the CBSE to allot non-teaching responsibilities to the teachers.  

The move comes after repeated complaints from the teachers about being saddled with non-teaching duties such as managing school canteens or travelling with children in buses. Many teachers had complained to the CBSE – the country’s biggest school board that private schools were trying to cut costs by asking teaching staff to multi-task by taking up other duties like managing canteens or doing an accountant’s job of collecting fee.

The new rules set by the Central Board of Secondary Education leaves little choice for CBSE affiliated schools as pointed out by CBSE secretary Joseph Emmanuel. In his letter to schools, Mr Emmanuel said, “Schools affiliated to CBSE shall ensure that teachers will not be engaged in activities other than those related to direct teaching, professional upgradation, examination, evaluation, et al. For activities of ministerial nature, transport or canteen for similar related tasks and separate trained staff may be deployed by the schools.”

Further clarifying on the subject, CBSE has said that teachers can only be given extraneous work related to the census, disaster relief or election; apart from their teaching duties in line with the Chapter IV of the Right to Education Act.

The final decision about restricting the duties of teaching staff to academic work was taken at Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) meeting in Delhi on October 25. The meeting was chaired by Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar and attended by education ministers of all states and UTs.

The CABE meeting also discussed amendments to the guidelines for transport arrangements and bus attendants for affiliated schools. Under the newly issued guidelines, all CBSE schools are required to hire a transport co-ordinator / manager which will look after transportation facilities being provided to the students. The guidelines also ask schools to hire qualified bus attendants to take care of the children. Finally, the rules also ask for a mandatory annual medical examination and physical fitness test (including eye test) for all the bus drivers.
