More than 100 private schools in Tamil Nadu have applied to DSE (Directorate of School Education) for seeking NOC’s (No Objection Certificates) to open a CBSE school. These schools aim at having autonomy in deciding fee-structure and flexible curriculum to encourage more students.
Management of private high schools claimed that they are finding it difficult to run the schools with nominal fees decided by the state fee fixation committee.
Some schools revealed that only parents and students of high schools raise issues about increase in tuition fee. Parents are ready to pay high fee of CBSE schools for quality and that is why many private schools are approaching the DSE for CBSE affiliation.
Another official from a private high school quoted different educational facilities given by the CBSE board and mentioned that despite of following a uniform school curriculum introduced by the state government, school lacks educational freedom.
For instance, if a student fails in one of the 5 main subjects, CBSE schools can replace it with the marks of the sixth subject (Handicrafts or Physical Education). Such initiatives prevent students from failing.
The state government may pass the proposals of these schools as CBSE had extended the last date for submitting the NOCs from the state government.
