The Indian Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has declared its plan to include students in its course committees as well as in the process of framing the syllabus. These students will be nominated by the schools and will be selected on the basis of their performance in the 12th grade examinations. The course committees comprise of professors from universities, NCERT experts, teachers and subject experts, private and public schools and working teachers. According to CBSE Chairman Vineet Joshi, this commitment to student voice is motivated by a desire to make the courses and syllabus more inclusive and application-based. Mr. Joshi hopes that student involvement will improve the continuous and comprehensive evaluation-based educational system initiated by CBSE.
