GUWAHATI, March 20 � The All Assam Students� Union has expressed concern over the Board of Secondary Education (SEBA)�s decision to remove six subjects from the academic curriculum in the midst of an academic year.
Appealing the board to review its decision, the students� body said that the subjects, which have been removed are significant, but most of the students were unaware about the existence of such subjects in the curriculum.
In a statement, the AASU said that the sudden and one sided decision of the board to remove the elective subjects namely, home science, agriculture, dance, bamboo technology, textile design and drawing, which came through a circular on March 7, 2014, should be taken back and measures should be introduced for revival of these important subjects.
�Three months of this academic year are over and a new decision should not been imposed now,� the statement added. The AASU also appealed SEBA to create awareness among the students about the entire curriculum.
