Central Board of Secondary Education ( CBSE )
The CBSE Board has reached its present status after marked significant developments of the past. The U.P Board of High School and Intermediate Education was the first board that was set up in the year 1921. After which there was a request sent by the Government of United Provinces to set up a Joint Board in the year 1929 in Rajputana.
Soon after, there were major achievements by the Board coupled with expansions and growth. However, with the coming of the State led Universities as well as State Boards in different parts of the country, it seemed like the jurisdiction of the Education Board was limited only up to certain parts of the country. That’s when in 1952, there was an amendment in its constitution and the Board was given the name, ‘Central Board of Secondary Education. Its constitution was completed in the year 1962.
The Board’s main objectives are to serve the cause of education for everybody, to provide for the educational needs of the students and the parents. Especially, for those employed in the Central Government and who are subjected to frequent transfers. CBSE has both public and private colleges under it.
Today many of the schools are affiliated to CBSE, New Delhi. And the reformation it brought through the new CCE (Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation) pattern is tremendous. To know more about it you can go through the website.
