The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to revive its affiliation by-laws so as to check the commercialisation of education and put a cap on the maximum fees a school can charge for providing education.
According to CBSE chairman Rajesh Chaturvedi, “We are planning to reconstruct the byelaws to better tune them to government policies that affect education to ensure better regulation and compliance.”
The continuous hikes in the school fees have been a major concern for parents across the country.
The board has decided to put an upper cap on the fees charged by any school affiliated to the CBSE, so that every student can enjoy the legacy of education.
Rajesh Chaturvedi also emphasized on making its by-laws fully compatible with disability laws. He said that the infrastructure of CBSE schools should be well developed so as to cater to the student with disabilities or special needs.
