Description: The Union Cabinet’s decision to scrap the no-detention policy in schools till Class VIII – a key provision of the Right to Education (RTE) Act – is a backward step. The no- (1) policy was instituted to arrest school dropouts, especially among economically marginalised communities. However, last year the Central Advisory Board of Education – the highest body advising the Centre and states on education – passed a (2) to scrap the no-detention policy on the ground that it was leading to lower learning outcomes. But it’s the poor quality of teaching that must be (3) rather than students.
Bringing back year-end examinations for Classes V and VIII and detaining students who fail them won’t improve learning outcomes. It will simply palm off the responsibility of learning to students, letting teachers off the hook. Students from economically well off (4) can overcome the pass-fail system through out-of-school tuitions. But this option simply isn’t available to economically disadvantaged students who are (5) to the school system (6). Hence a removal of the non-removal policy in the introductory years of a career is guaranteed to increase the rate of dropping out of school, casting a shadow on the future of millions of disadvantaged students.

This clearly shows that improvement of quality of education continues to get short shrift. Politicians still see education as a tool to disburse (10) rather than a means to uplift the next generation.
