Spelling bee in the bonnet

CBSE has devised a "scientific marking pattern".: if you can't spell, we won't cut any marks.

Here's the part that's really warped: "Kumar says today's children are "extremely weak" in spelling and he blames the "change in mode of teaching at schools" for this. Spelling and dictation classes are passe and the focus is on developing communication skills. "It is, therefore, wrong to penalise kids for spelling goof-ups, if they have the right answers."

Great! Instead of improving the standards of teaching, just relax the standards of evaluation.
