The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has a new way of coming about, the CBSE –i or CBSE international which has been already taken in a few schools in United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia and other Gulf countries might just trickle down to the Indian CBSE.
Apparently, all schools across the globe, affiliated to the CBSE, would have to undergo an accreditation process subscribed by the board in the next three years. If the schools do not come up to the prescribed standards in the next five years, they could face disaffiliation from the board.
Since the curriculum is highly demanding in terms of infrastructure, the fees in CBSE-i schools are slightly on the higher side than the fee structure in CBSE schools.
Under the CBSE –i curriculum, all the learning material is finely divided into the teacher’s and the student’s manual. The teacher’s manual is heavier than that of the student’s manual.
