Students from Class 1-9 and Class 11 would be following the CBSE pattern from this academic year.
A total of 20 English-medium schools under Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE) were shifted to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in order to improve the quality of education.
Announcing this, the Tripura state Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath tweeted, “Happy to share that the following 20 English Medium Schools have been freshly affiliated to CBSE. I thank CBSE for these affiliations.”
Students from Class 1-9 and Class 11 would be following the CBSE pattern from this academic year except the students studying in Class 10 and 12.
Generally, the schools are affiliated to the state board if they are aided by the state government and other publicly-funded local bodies.
A website that belongs to the CBSE defines affiliation as, “Affiliation means formal enrolment of a school among the list of approved schools of the board following prescribed or approved courses of studies up to Class 8, as well as those preparing students according to prescribed courses for the board’s secondary and/or senior secondary examinations.”
Sources say that as on May 1, 2019, 21,271 schools in the country and 228 international schools in 25 countries are affiliated to CBSE. The website mentions that there are 1,138 Kendriya Vidyalayas, 3011 government-aided schools, 16,741 private schools, 595 Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas and 14 Central Tibetan Schools. When totalled, CBSE has 21,499 schools affiliated to it globally, and the list of the schools is available on CBSE’s official website (www.cbseaff.nic.in) .
CBSE affiliation implements quite a few changes as it controls and standardizes the criterion of teachers, number of teachers to chosen for a particular school, provisions related to examinations, student teacher ratio, size of a classroom, number of students can be accommodated in one class room, seating arrangement for the students, safety norms which the school is required to obey, financial status of the school for affiliation, activities for which school funds can be utilized and the relevant features for ensuring quality of education conveyed to the pupils.
The board initially grants affiliation to a school for the period of three years, which can further be extended up to five years. The extension is subject to some terms and regulations that are to be followed.
