The Delhi high court on Wednesday dismissed a plea seeking its intervention and quashing of Central Board of Secondary Education’s (CBSE) introduction of grading system for Class 12 and Class 10, and abolition of the examination in Class 10.
“I have gone through the grounds urged in the petition. The petitioner is seeking intervention of this court on matters which are prohibited. There is no merit in the petition. The same is dismissed,” said justice RS Endlaw and declined to quash CBSE’s two notifications on introduction of grades from academic year 2010-2011.
Challenging CBSE’s circulars of September 20 and 29, 2009 for introduction of grading system, Indepedent Schools’ Federation of India said these circulars were not issued in accordance with the National Curriculum Framework and they needed to be set aside.
