The CBSE decided to launch a gender sensitization program for classes I to XII students as part of the regular curriculum. This new integrated program that students will be taught,  help them to abolish gender based discrimination and they will know how to respect the opposite gender.

Vineet Joshi, the chairman of CBSE said that our society has moved forward but still many reforms are needed  to make it better. To reduce the increasing violence of society,  people have to stop discrimination based on gender.

“A teacher training program along with a module for children has been developed in response to the necessity of gender sensitization in the country”, said by Sadhna Parashar, director, training, academic, research and innovation of CBSE.

The chairman of the board also added that from the current academic session CBSE will start an open test-based assessment. Joshi said that the students will receive study material comprising the sample question paper prior to three to four months. Different queries at the time of assessment will be provided although the all questions will be from the study material only.

He added, This open test-based assessment will be commenced for class IX and XI. In Class IX, it will be conducted for the main subjects whereas in Class XI, only three subjects will be considered under the assessment that are economics, biology and geography.
