It was indeed a welcome move by CBSE in planning to start rating all its schools so that parents are not duped by mere brochures. The rating will be not only for quality of the school, infrastructure, its teachers but all about the transparency of the management and the admissions. Scant details are as yet available but around 40 out of the 10,000 schools under CBSE board, will be rated in the pilot.
KOOLSKOOL welcomes this steps by CBSE and hopes that the rating system itself is transparent and hence free from the corruption that quickly enters the system. Parents want their children to focus on different areas and this rating mechanism will be spread across extra-curricular areas as well.
All schools will have to proceed towards accreditation gradually. Under the accreditation plan, experts rating the school will, in addition to checking academic results, infrastructure and teacher qualifications, also invite feedback from parents, residents of neighbourhood areas and other stakeholders
