Experts’ different opinions on examinations
Giriraj Khoriwal, state coordinator of the Private Education Institute, Prosperity Alliance, says that children should be passed only after examination in both urban and rural areas. Last year also, it was directly promoted. This is adversely affecting the education of children. The examination should be delayed.
Rajasthan Teachers ‘ Association (National) State Minister Ravi Acharya says there is a provision for passing children upto 8th under RTE. Even if the children pass the test, what is the need for a test in this crisis? These children should be promoted directly like last year.
