Chatterjee’s observations regarding the education system and Continuous and the Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) make a lot of sense. His view that evaluation changes alone cannot create a value or bring a great change in the education system is right on the mark. As he has rightly put, it is the nurturing and not the mentoring that is important if a true reform is expected in the educational scenario.

The current education policy undoubtedly has lofty aims but the strategies for execution have not been worked out meticulously. Experimenting with a policy among students that does not include practical difficulties and significant changes, will do more damage than good to the future of the students. Hence a more detailed and realistic study of the effectiveness into education reforms rather than the evaluation would be far more effective.
