Govt moots proposal to enhance educational standards
New Delhi, Jan 17 (PTI) Government today mooted a proposal for an "institutional framework" to strengthen Centre-state collaboration in raising educational standards under the RTE regime with the involvement of key education regulators.
Such a framework would include educational bodies like NCERT, State Councils of Educational Research and Trainings (SCERT), CBSE, Council of Boards of School Education in India (COBSE) and National Council for Teacher Education (NCTE).
The proposal was mooted by HRD Minister Kapil Sibal at the meeting of central and state education regulatory bodies with an aim to ensure "constant coordination, continuous flow of information and dialogues between them", said an HRD Ministry official.
Sibal also said that the institutional mechanism between NCERT and SCERTs should also work towards developing question banks which could be used by states for their Teacher Eligibility Test.
