DERGAON, May 17 - “Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA), formed in 1961, has done well in the academic arena of the State. It has maintained secrecy to its level best till date. So its independency should also be maintained at any level.” This was stated by the secretary of Assam High School Teachers’ Association (AHSTA), Chandra Gogoi, while reacting on the Education Minister’s remark on ‘grace mark’ given by the SEBA.
The secretary also opined that the SEBA should be free from any pressure on holding examinations. On the other hand, the spokesperson of AHSTA, Sochi Gohain, said that since SEBA is an autonomous body hence it should be made autonomous in true sense. He also said that the body should be headed by an educationist instead of any bureaucrat for a fixed term of five years.
The spokesperson also demanded to publish the reports of the SEBA Reforms Committees formed by the government from time to time and the recommendations made by the Committees should be implemented.
