I pity the state of government boards ... it shows "WePissing" effect ... reservation over eligibility. The world seeks India when it comes to software and our great board cannot understand the difference between an excel sheet and software ? The board is responsible for encouraging all wrong practices. How can excel sheets be used for managing report cards ? Who guarantees data sanctity and final correct version? Is class teacher responsible for verifying whether rest of the teacher have completed their sheets / columns without accidentally changing the value of cells not related to their subjects ? Explaining report card formats is fine but why inculcate wrong practices in teachers who are already so poor in technology ? Who in school is responsible to manage and validate hundreds of excel sheets generated over years ? Is this the way a schools is supposed to manage its intellectual property ? Shame on board and NIC for overlooking basic needs of schools !!
