The post which was vacant since December 2014 has now been filled. After a wait for nearly two years, the government has allotted the position of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) chairman for a five-year term to a 1987- batch IAS officer Rajesh Kumar Chaturvedi.
A post-graduate in geography who is fluent in Russian, Kumar has completed five concise training functions at a variety of Indian Institutes of Management in subjects ranging from information technology to public policy. According to his executive record sheet, he attended two abroad training courses, counting one in the UK on human resource development.
Earlier than the CBSE chairman’s post, he was posted in the Seventh Pay Commission secretariat.
Chaturvedi highlighted on the need for developing quality of education in schools across the country with sufficient push upon teacher quality to maintain progress in the standard of schooling.
Mr. Kumar’s name was released on a day after 19 Additional Secretary-level appointments and 29 Joint Secretary-level appointments were declared.
All attention is now on Chaturvedi that what kind of change he will bring to the education ground. A CBSE student Anshika Bhardwaj from New Delhi based private school raised her concern over the issue of No Detention Policy. She further added “CBSE is not doing anything new or good for students; I hope our new CBSE chairman will think about several sensitive issues related to students and their education. And also give a thought over No Detention Policy as it is harming student’s future”.
Rajesh’s disclosure as the CBSE chairman has brought an ample of excitement with many indications that the enhancement will convey a flow of fresh and electrifying decisions for the central board and its students.
