I do not understand the need to tamper with something that is running smoothly. Sixty plus years and we still do not have a proper education system in place or that is what it seems, with the constant meddling with the system.
I, as a parent and someone who was in the teaching profession think that the education system that was practised when I was in school was the best. I am referring to the quarterly, half yearly and final examination pattern. These days children have small portions to study, and they do so just to secure good marks. With the final examinations being abolished the need to revise the entire year's syllabus is not there. I find this to be a reason for children not mastering the basics of a subject.
The present system encourages mugging rather than understanding.
CBSE has done well with reintroducing the marks systems. The grading system was flawed.
