Your opinion: Is such strictness good or bad?On 7th February, 2018, the Xth Standard and XIIth Standard Board examinations commenced at Uttar Pradesh. But on the first day itself, a remarkable thing happened. Over 1.8 lakh students reported absent on the first day of the examination itself. Reason? The Uttar Pradesh State Government has taken very strong measures to stop copying and other unethical practises during the examination. Not only that, it has also been reported that a Special Task Force has arrested one Headmaster and two teachers who were helping the examinees to cheat.
It is crystal clear that the present State Government has been trying with iron hands to clean the system. The degeneration in education in Uttar Pradesh caused by the previous Governments must be checked. However, some people are against such strictness.
I wholeheartedly support the sincere effort of the Education Department of Uttar Pradesh. What is your opinion?
