CBSE bans JEE coaching in schools
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), in a new circular, has asked all affiliated schools to stop conducting integrated coaching for the regular syllabus and the IIT JEE.
The Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) is an all-India engineering entrance examination that serves as the gateway to the country’s premium technical education institutes including the IITs.
In the circular, the Board has instructed principals of all CBSE affiliated schools to immediately stop offering such integrated coaching programs as part of the regular workday or otherwise.
“It has been reported that some of the schools are running coaching institutions on the school premises under the pretext of providing preparations for entrance examinations. This is not approved by the board and schools need to stop such malpractices immediately,” the circular signed by CBSE secretary Joseph Immanuel read.
