No Detention Policy

 No Detention Policy

'No Detention Policy,' which means that no pupil can fail until the eighth grade. This

policy had been in place until now, when the government changed it. The researcher would

want to explain why this will make our educational system even worse. This policy was

implemented in 2009 under the Right to Education Act, which stated that every child up to

the age of 14 shall have access to educational rights under the Act. As a result, it was agreed

that the Pass/Fail system would be phased out until 8th grade, and the concept of CCE

(Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation) would be adopted, in which a child's overall

performance is assessed throughout the year, reducing the burden of grades.

This programme was inspired by industrialised countries, and its goal was to reduce

exam stress among students as well as dropout rates due to failure, allowing the maximum

number of students to receive an education.

Prior to the No Detention Policy, the passing percentage of CBSE schools was 89.44

percent in 2009, and in 2012, following three years of this policy, the passing percentage has

climbed to 98 percent.

As a result, children graduating in 2012 had two years of No Detention Policy

experience prior to their eighth grade, and the passing percentage increased after the No

Detention Policy. Furthermore, as a result of this policy, dropout rates in CBSE schools for

pupils in grades 1–5 fell from 9% in 2009 to 6.5 percent in 2012. So, these two facts suggest

that removing the pressure of a Pass/Fail grade improves kids' future performance and helps

them stay interested in school. The reason for this is that if a child is thinking about Pass/Fail

from first to eighth grade, he is affected towards rote learning because cracking an exam

someplace leads to rote learning, however when a student's concentration is not on tests, he is

driven towards rote learning.

Data also suggests that children who have failed at least once in school are more

likely to drop out. One of the top five reasons for student dropouts, according to the National

Family Health Survey of 2005, was "repeated failure," in which youngsters become

demotivated after failing repeatedly in the classroom and leave out. Such issues, which look

at caste-based data, are particularly useful in observing the development of all religions in the


Gender, caste, and religion all have different rates of school dropouts. The greatest

dropout rates are among Muslims, followed by the schedule tribe at 16.55 percent, schedule

caste at 15.4 percent, and OBC at 12.7 percent, with the general category having the lowest

dropout rates at only 11 percent. Girls have the greatest school dropout rate (15.3%) when

compared to boys. The goal of these statistics is to show that if the NDP is phased out, castes,

religion, and gender will be severely impacted.

As a result, the disparity between classes and religions in our cultures will continue to

grow. Another significant cause is that society has reached a breaking point in terms of exam

stress. Exam stress has been depicted in films such as Three Idiots, in which a student

commits suicide. According to statistics, one child in our country commits suicide every

hour. In our country, there are various exam-related cases that no one has ever imagined, for

example, Four school girls perished after falling against a wall after failing a monthly exam

when a 12th grade student at Ryan School lilled a 7-year-old youngster to postpone his
