Detention Policy for Class 1 to 8

Many changes have been made by the government in the recently announced syllabus issued for year 2018 -2019. Change has been made in the school detention policy applicable for Class 1 to Class 8.

Under the previous CCE system no students were detained in classes 1 to 8 irrespective of their results. This led to very weak students also getting into next classes leading to low passing percentages in senior classes. This also impacted the quality of grades in schools as there was no fear of being detained. Government has relooked into this policy and has amended it.

The HRD ministry has issued instructions to all schools to start detaining students in class 1 to 8 if the student fails in more than two subjects in any class. The schools will have an option to allow student to give retest and give the exam again in which the student has failed. If the student still fails in the same subject then the student will be told to again spend the entire year in his current class.

This move has been welcomed by many but has not been taken in good spirits by child activists and parents stating the fact that this will lead to increased pressure on students.

The above mentioned new policy will be applicable from session 2018 – 2019 and will be applicable for results which will be declared in 2019.
