‘Parents’ involvement in studies helped students score high marks’

Kochi: Parents’ involvement in education and appropriate guidance by the Kerala CBSE School Managements Association helped students from the state score high marks in CBSE Class XII examinations, said CBSE School Managements  Association president T P M Ibrahim Khan. “Parents in Kerala show keen interest in the educational matters of their children.

The school managements were also vigilant,” said Ibrahim Khan. According to him, many schools in other states, especially those owned and run by big organisations, operate mechanically, while teaching in schools in Kerala is more result-oriented,” he said.

The association was expecting a slight fall in the overall  pass per cent owing to the strict guidelines issued by the CBSE on valuation of answer sheets as directed by the Union Ministry of Human Rights Development. “However, the authorities later decided to implement the new guidelines from next year,” Ibrahim Khan said.
