CBSE: Major initiatives for improving education, school hub will open from July 1
CBSE is going to take a big step towards educational reform. Schools will be made for this. Schools across the country will be divided into hubs A hub will include five or more schools. Schools coming in a hub will cooperate with each other in various activities. A hub of five or more schools will be known as the Collaborative Learning Hub- CBSE Hubs of learning (CLH).
These CLHs will share each other’s resources together. These schools will help each other in capacity building, jointly organize joint activities. There will also be a program of exchanging teacher and students between these school hubs and prepare their own course and paper for the first to the eighth class.
The CLH will start from July 1. The result of which will be used in the audit conducted for recognition and upgradation of schools. Under this scheme, about 22,000 accredited institutions have been divided into 4,500 district hubs.
The biggest benefit of this initiative will be that studies in any school will not be affected due to the lack of infrastructure and teachers. If there is a lack of teacher in any school, then it can be filled from another school. In this way Infrastructure will also be related to the requirements. Most government and private schools have welcomed this revolutionary initiative. CBSE Secretary Anurag Tripathi said, “There are many schools where there is lack of resources, so there are some institutions which have the resources but they can not use them completely.”
He said, ‘For example, every school has some very good teachers. Now such teachers will help teachers of other schools. Monopoly on education will end with the exchange program being organized for teachers and students. ‘
School hubs will also share sports facilities, laboratories, and auditorium among themselves. Together they will organize training for principals and teachers as well as organize sports and cultural programs, science exhibitions and quiz. The school hub will also be encouraged to organize seminars on certain key issues such as safety and well-being, energy and water conservation, environment, digital innovation, ethics and values and leadership skills for the students.
Each hub will also be joined by industrial units, factories, administrative headquarters, security services, higher education institutions and business houses located in their surroundings so that they can learn something from them and have deep knowledge about life and society. The school hub will also be encouraged for welfare activities. They will also be motivated to adopt any school and village or to develop the garden.
