Can a school in India run without any affiliation till 8th (read description please)

By sudhendu | Nov 3, 2015

Hello Everyone,
Hope all are doing well.I am currently doing some research (on education in India) and in that, I am stuck around the question of "whether a K-10 school in India run without affiliation to any board (State board or IGSCE, CBSE, IB, etc.). The idea is to provide school with 'inbound' curriculum till 8th standard and then do affiliation with any board (for 9th and 10th standard, mainly to provide a valid exit certificate to student). We teach children our way till 8th standard. This is to develop a more dynamic and relative up-scaled courseware.

Going Beyond Textbooks

By go2saurav | Jul 26, 2015

In my previous article (Textbooks – a key link in traditional teaching methodology), I shared my views on the critical role that Textbooks played in establishing connect among the Teachers, Students and Parents. The shift from "Textbook Only" teaching came with the introduction of Computers in schools. This led to the shift in the teaching methodology from Textbook/ Reference Books mode to Textbook ++ mode.

Role of Educator as An Engineer of Psychoware and Somatoware...

By bhaskarshodh | Mar 26, 2014

We lost Education in Classification of Information.  Information leads us from literacy to specialization only.  A journey from literacy to a specialization in schools and universities is not education. Unfortunately some opportunists are indoctrinating society in the name of education with various institutions. An educator opens the doors of knowledge; the other closes all but the one he wants his followers to pass through! Education is a process for self identification.
