    No-detention policy for Std I-VIII students may change soon

    Mumbai/Nagpur: The no-detention policy under the Right to Education (RTE) Act for the Class I-VIII students is likely to be changed soon. The sub-committee formed under the leadership of education minister Vinod Tawde has suggested to give one month for revision to Class V-VIII students who fail in the final exam.

    Along with Tawde, the sub-committee has representatives from states such as Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Tamil Nadu. The committee has submitted a report of some of their suggestions to the ministry of human resource development (MHRD), which included suggestions on changing the examination pattern, said Vinod Tawde.

    According to the committee, students from Class V-VIII should be given a month’s time to prepare again. The exam will be conducted again afterward. If the students fail again, they should be held back in the same class.

    Suggestions have also been made to continue the baseline and continuous comprehensive evaluation (CCE) of the students. The teachers who do the CCE of students should be trained, suggested the sub-committee.

    Tawde said, “The no-detention policy is good but students are taking an advantage by not taking the examinations and studies seriously. There is no more fear of examination among students.”
