“We have to have a start, our kids are losing for not having this,” a senior education ministry official told Kashmir Wire. “On a pilot basis we have decided to introduce it in four school across the state, two each in Jammu and Srinagar.”
Though the official said he is not in a position to offer any idea about which two schools in Jammu will adopt the CBSE systems and norms, he hinted that the SP Higher Secondary School and the Amira Kadal Girls Higher Secondary School could be the two from Kashmir.
J&K’s State Board of School Education (SBOSE) had adopted the NCERT systems and curriculum many decades back. It has at the best been amended to a limited level but not improved and changed as has happened in the rest of the India.
Unlike NCERT system, CBSE has an early spring examination system.
