Parents of CBSE school students oppose 6-day week proposal for Classes 6 to 8
More than 12,700 parents of children studying in schools affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) across the country, including Mumbai, have joined an online petition opposing a proposed six-day week for Classes 6 to 8.
‘Let our kids rest’ was started by parents last month, demanding that their children be allowed to relax over the weekend.
In a circular on curriculum updates for 2015-16, the CBSE has directed schools to function six hours and 10 minutes six days a week. However, it will remain a five-day week for students of Classes 1 to 5.
Though the CBSE officials said the proposal is yet to be finalised, parents have started an online campaign raising their voices against it. The parents have written a petition addressed to the CBSE board chairperson.
“Indian students have some of the highest stress levels in the world,” read the petition. “Our children don’t have enough time to spend with families, play sports or take part in extra-curricular activities.”
The parents have demanded the board to withdraw the proposal. “If many of us sign the petition, we can send the message loud and clear to CBSE not to overburden our children,” said a parent, refusing to be named.
They said that weekends are important for children to de-stress after working hard throughout the week. “My son looks forward to weekends as he can relax and do activities that he loves,” said a parent. “This also helps my son focus at school for the rest of the week.”

Students prefer the CBSE over the CISCE for the Class 10 and Class 12 exams
It is a "misconception" that students prefer the CBSE over the CISCE for the Class 10 and Class 12 exams as the former prepares them better for competitive exams, an official said on Thursday.
The Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) conducts the ISC exam for Class 12 and the ICSE exam for Class 10 students.
"It is a misconception and just a mindset that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) prepares students for competitive exams," CISCE chief executive and secretary Gerry Arathoon told the media here.
"Since the CBSE conducts exams like the All India Engineering Entrance Examination (AIEEE) and All India Pre-Medical Test (AIPMT), it has become a mindset and misconception that CBSE prepares better than ICSE/ISC," Arathoon added.
CBSE has decided to create a cadre of master trainers
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided to create a cadre of master trainers for running in-service training programmes for teachers at its affiliated schools to improve teaching standards.
"Continuous professional development of in-service teachers plays a pivotal role in school education and development of a country, thus it is among the priorities of CBSE," said DT Sudharshan Rao, Joint Secretary and In-charge (Academics and Training).
"In this regard, CBSE is inviting experienced principals, vice principals and senior teachers to become Master Trainers and Trainers to conduct in-service training programmes for teachers throughout the country," Mr Rao said.
(News) AIPMT 2015 exam cancelled, Supreme Court directs CBSE to conduct fresh test within 4 weeks
Over 630,000 students will have to take the All-India Pre-Medical Test afresh in four weeks after the Supreme Court on Monday scrapped it due to large-scale irregularities but experts fear protracted admission delays after the CBSE indicated the time-frame was not enough.
A bench of justices RK Agarwal and Amitava Roy also ordered that all institutes involved in the AIPMT exam process must cooperate with the CBSE to conduct the retest.
The bench said that although the re-conduct of the examination would consume time and cause inconvenience but to maintain the "impeccable and irrefutable" credibility of examination "this is the price, the stakeholders would have to suffer".
"We are not unaware that in holding the present examination as well as in participating in the exercise, all genuinely concerned have put in tireless efforts. All these however have been rendered futile by a handful of elements seeking to reap undue financial gain by subjecting the process to their evil manoeuvres.
"We have thus no hesitation to order that the All India Pre-Medical and Pre-Dental Test stands cancelled. CBSE would now have to hold a fresh examination at the earliest... We direct the Board, in the attendant of facts and circumstances to hold the examination within a period of four weeks from today," the bench said.
The top court rejected the CBSE’s argument that cancelling the test would be unfair when only 44 students had been booked for unfair practices and said the entire examination process stood vitiated.
"The bigger issue is that the sanctity of the examination is under suspicion. We want to be doubly sure that there is no alternative but to order re-conduct of the exam," a two-judge SC bench said.
The court was hearing a batch of petitions filed by candidates, who wrote the exam, seeking its cancellation.
