We live in a world where science and technology have become an integral part of our life. We use computers for everything, from morning alarms to health advises. Infact, we should be thankful to the inventors of these technological advancements. Why would anyone want to not use these gadgets? Is it not disrespectful to the inventors, who had dedicated their lives to make our lives a lot easier?
High-school Students around the world use calculators in school and exams. Then why on earth are high schoolers in India "deprived of this basic school necessity"? Basic arithmetic skills, like addition and multiplication, are supposed to be assessed in primary school and middle school, not in high school. Secondary school should make students familiar to the real world and enrich their practical knowledge. The amount of time students in India waste, while calculating sums manually, could be used for learning new skills. Moreover, there are few students in grade 11 and 12 who don't even know how to use a scientific calculator. Do we want these students to be engineers and accountants?
Shree Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India, has introduced multiple policies to digitize India. Our governments have tried the best to make India technologically progressed. Then why has CBSE failed to keep up with this technological growth? Why is CBSE still so outdated? Banning calculators in high schools is nonsensical. If we want India to be a digital country, we should start changing our school system first.
