By Madhurie Singh, March 16, 2018
Maharashtra aims to start open school education board (OSB) for those who could not finish their 10th or 12th class and now not possible for them to go into the mainstream schooling.
Extraordinary students, sportsmen and even those who did not get an opportunity to appear for school exams can benefit from the proposed OSB scheme.
The new board will function under the Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education. The syllabus of the board would be different from the regular syllabus of the Secondary Education Board, an official said.
The board will have subjects like agriculture, economics, science and technology, bakery production, screen printing, information technology, co-operatives.
It will also have languages such as Marathi, English, Hindi, Urdu, Gujarati and Sanskrit.
