In order to improve the educational structure for the students, especially in class 1 to 8, the no-detention policy is likely to be revised from the new school session. State Council of Education Research and Training (SCERT) sources said this.
Under Right to Education (RTE), the no-detention policy covers the primary schools from class 1 to 5 and upper primary from class 6 to 8. This means direct transfer of the students of class 1 to 8 without theirs appearing in the examinations.
As per the officials, regular suggestions are being given to the Centre for revising the no-detention policy.
There is now a possibility of conducting examinations again for the students of class 5 to 8. Students who would score less marks might have to sit in the re-test to pass.
As per the state education department, a continuous and comprehensive evaluation is being made to implement the process in the State.
Speaking of the matter, the State Institute of Education Management and Training Uttarakhand (SIEMAT) director Seema Jaunsari said, “These changes would prove a major step towards strengthening the primary education. It would also make things transparent.
The monthly exams which will be conducted under this would be beneficial for the students.
Besides, the teachers would be able to give remarks about the students to their parents.”
