New Delhi, Mar 29 (PTI) In an ambitious plan to go global, India’s premier education board CBSE has decided to set up CBSE International (CBSEI) which would offer a new curriculum and also affiliate schools from foreign countries.
The CBSEI will be launched on Thursday when the board would affiliate 25 schools from Gulf countries, where there is a large concentration of Indian population. Each school has about 9,000 students
Schools in Oman, UAE, Qatar and Singapore have evinced interest in joining the CBSEI and principals of these schools met HRD Minister Kapil Sibal in this regard today.
These 25 schools, already affiliated to CBSE, will be re-affiliated to the new global wing, CBSE Chairman Vineet Joshi said, adding that the CBSEI will not only focus on Indian diaspora but also attract students from those countries.
