CBSE better off de-emphasising external exams and focusing on internal exams coupled with quality internal assessments
In a survey done by CBSE, it has been found that the Indian schools are currently falling short of 1.2 million teachers. With more and more students enrolling for school education in India, the student-teacher ratio stands at 43:1 where as according to ASER, the standard ratio is 30:1.
The shortage of teachers in schools, has encouraged CBSE to focus on the role of technology in its classrooms. CBSE, alongwith with its assessment research wing, Centre for Assessment & Evaluation Research (CAER) feels the need make children technology-friendly at the elementary level itself.
