Support Theatre Studies

This petition had 20 supporters


We are grateful to Central Board of Secondary Education for introducing ‘Theatre Studies’ in 2013-2014 session as an additional subject. We are flustered by sudden decision of withdrawing this subject and depriving our students of practical theatrical learning. The rationale given behind this decision is handful of children enrolled for the subject against the number required for the continuation of the subject. Had it been continued it could have generated and attracted more students. 

We, theatre educators/ teachers have witnessed that Theatre Studies have tremendously assisted our students to unleash their potential in every way. 

What we imagine youth to be, Theatre creates the youth we want to be. It makes youth to think, re-think and act on social issues, political issues, self exploration, relationship building to name a few. With modern developments we all are loosing space to express our emotions. Theatre is a medium to experience and release these burdening emotions. We firmly believe in continuing 'Theatre Studies' as an additional subject. 

We request the board committee and you all to support this petition and bringing this subject alive in our education system.
