Change negative public perception about BOSE: Education minister tells officials

Education minister Choudhary Zulfkar Ali on Wednesday asked authorities in the Board of School Education to clear negative public perception about the institution.

The minister stated this while taking a review meeting of BOSE at its Bemina office here. The meeting was attended by MoS education Shakti Raj Parihar, secretary school education Farooq Ahmad Shah, chairperson BOSE Veena Pandita, director academics, joint secretary examination and other officials.

“There is a negative perception in public about BOSE which needs to be changed. There is no end point for improvement. If BOSE has improved its work culture it should get reflected in public,” the education minister said.

The minister said the JKBOSE Act needs to be changed to bring more reforms in the institution. “Give us some proposals for amendment and government will accordingly bring changes in it,” he said.

Speaking about the text books, the minister asked JKBOSE to incorporate chapters of local content like fine arts, crafts, culture, local music and lifestyle in text books which will keep students updated with the local trends. “There are many things which exist today and will be history tomorrow,” the minister said and asked to form common curriculum for all schools and take BOSE at par with CBSE. “If there is a need to pass legislation in this regard, government will do that,” he said.

The education minister said the text books should be reviewed after every three years unlike the earlier practice wherein text books were reviewed after five years. “I know BOSE has limited resources but to come out of negative public perception you have to make further improvements,” he said.

Commenting about the academic standards of government schools, the education minister said the government schools should come at par with private schools which will end the supremacy of private institutions. “In New Delhi government schools are much better than the private schools. Same trend should start here,” he said.

The minister also asked BOSE to redesign pattern of question papers for class 10 and 12 in such a way that it increases the pass percentage and also lessens burden on students.

“We should go for objective type questions with some reasoning as well,” he said, adding that BOSE should also enhance remuneration for evaluators and an independent evaluation centre should be established with hi-tech facilities.

The minister said the exam centres for class 10th and 12th should be set up in such schools which are equipped with CCTV. “This will reduce chances of unfair means,” he said.

“The teachers deployed for exam duty should not be informed beforehand about their exam centres. There should be secrecy in it,” he suggested.
