CABE recommends free and compulsory education up to class X


Free and compulsory education up to class X and a law to check unfair practices in private schools were recommended by the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE).

A committee would be set up on each of these issues to prepare a preliminary draft within three months, following which a report will be placed before the stakeholders for discussion.

The CABE comprises state education ministers, academicians and civil society members.

The Prohibition of Unfair Practises in Schools and Intermediate Colleges Bill, 2011 would lay emphasis on self-disclosure norms by schools in matters of admission, tuition fee and teacher salary.

The members agreed to extend free and compulsory education from class VIII to class X, a few, however, favoured a change in the funding norms for implementing RTE.

While Bihar suggested to raise the Centre’s contribution from 65 percent to 90, Chhattisgarh demanded it should be revised in the ratio of 75:25 instead of 65:35.

Statistics show that close to 60 percent secondary and higher secondary schools out of 13 lakh-odd schools in the country are private run.
