Mangaluru, Sep 5, 2015: Speaking at a function organised by the office of the Block Education Officer, Mangaluru South, at the St. Sebastian Hall, MLC Ganesh Karnik said CCE process is complicated. Though I am not an educational expert, I do not find any need for such a system of evaluation.
MLC Karnik said teachers are made to keep a detailed record of each child and this hardly leaves any time for them to teach children. There were no such systems during past times but teachers did well to evaluate and guide.

Difficulties faced are well known and have been raised with the Education Minister Kimmane Ratnakar.

It is helping slow learners a lot, adding that there was a need to bring in changes in the CCE to make it more effective.
