CBSE bans JEE coaching in schools

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), in a new circular, has asked all affiliated schools to stop conducting integrated coaching for the regular syllabus and the IIT JEE.

The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an all-India engineering entrance examination that serves as the gateway to the country’s premium technical education institutes including the IITs.

In the circular, the Board has instructed principals of all CBSE affiliated schools to immediately stop offering such integrated coaching programs as part of the regular workday or otherwise.

“It has been reported that some of the schools are running coaching institutions on the school premises under the pretext of providing preparations for entrance examinations. This is not approved by the board and schools need to stop such malpractices immediately,” the circular signed by CBSE secretary Joseph Immanuel read.

The Board also confirmed that appropriate actions will be taken in case a school fails to follow the instructions mentioned in the circular. In its defense, the Board stated that many students, teachers and parents expressed concerns about the trend and the amount of stress it eventually causes amongst students.

Some schools, however, stated that they are ready to move the integrated coaching outside the regular workday schedule.

“We will shift the programme to after-school hours, and extend the school time,” the principal of Maharishi Vidya Mandir, Chennai, which offers the integrated school program with FIITJEE, stated, Times of India reports.

While some parents welcomed the Board’s move, others had serious reservation against it. According to them, the move will make things even more complicated for their children because they will now have to enroll for separate coaching institutes.

“It was a relief to know the school conducted the programme, because we didn’t have to arrange for my son to attend coaching classes somewhere else,” ToI quoted a parent with a child in such a program in response to the news that CBSE bans JEE coaching in schools .
