Monthly Newsletter |August 2019 | Volume 04


To all my readers…

 

I am happy to present before you the fourth edition of our newsletter. Past few months have seen some decisive directives issued by the CBSE, this month has not been an exception in this respect. There were new regulations and the introduction of Standard Operating Procedure with respect to the admissions of students, also there are new directions by the CBSE to combat the problem of absenteeism in schools. these policy decisions are being contested as there are dissenting voices from several quarters, what shape these propositions will take remains to be seen.

 

The draft National Education Policy has remained in news, this time we have included its criticism for alleged omission of early childhood education concerns.

 

We are hopeful that the news and views being shared by us through monthly newsletters are of value to all our readers. We highly value your inputs and critique as it helps us evolve in our endeavors.

 

Happy Schooling !

Vinod Kakumanu
