A memorandum demanding the need for declaring the Central Government to be the controller of unaided CBSE schools was submitted to the Minister of Human Resources Development Smriti Irani by Indira Rahan, general secretary of Kerala CBSE School Managements Association in the presence of BJP state President V Murlidharan during a meeting held by the Ministry.
The memorandum appeals that the CBSE schools should be under the Centre removing all the difficulties with the implementation of RTE Act. The CBSE schools are directly controlled by the Centre or the HRD Ministry. Even the syllabus of it is prescribed by NCERT. As per Kerala Educational Rules, SCERT prescribed the syllabus for the elementary education.
The memorandum also states that if state government of the state is considered to be the appropriate governing body then there will be two types of syllabi mounted in CBSE schools functioning across Kerala. The state government will be in task to prepare the syllabus for elementary education from Classes 1 to 8 and CBSE Board will prepare it from classes 9 to 12 for secondary or senior secondary classes.
Both the process of education will have separate norms and procedures or CCE (Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation) and also two types of authorization will be given, as one for elementary classes based on state pattern and other for secondary and senior secondary classes based on CBSE manual.
