    The Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education (TSBIE) is being criticized for focusing more on bureaucratic procedures than on academic improvements. The board recently announced that junior colleges should work for 220 days in the upcoming academic year, out of a total of 302 days. This decision has raised concerns about the lack of focus on introducing new courses and updating syllabi.

    In the past, the TSBIE used to hold interactive sessions with college principals to discuss new courses and curriculum upgrades. However, these sessions have not taken place in the last two academic years. Despite claims of introducing new courses in both general and vocational streams, the board still follows traditional methods that limit students to specific subject areas like physical sciences, commerce, humanities, and social sciences.

    This approach has been criticized for restricting students to narrow academic paths, unlike Central boards that have adopted the New Education Policy-2020. Under this policy, students can choose subjects across different disciplines, allowing them to explore a wider range of academic areas. However, the implementation of this policy in Telangana is pending a decision from the State government.

    In conclusion, the TSBIE’s focus on bureaucratic processes over academic innovation has led to concerns about the board’s ability to adapt to changing educational landscapes. Critics argue that the board should prioritize introducing new courses and updating syllabi to provide students with a more diverse and interdisciplinary learning experience.
