The Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) is considering going international through collaborations with a school board in Finland, the country with one of the best school education systems. What makes the Finnish education system better is that it focuses on raising happiness and wellness of students. Officials believe that this step will give the necessary exposure to students, many of whom choose to go abroad for higher education after their 12th. CISCE will also be looking at education boards of Australia and the United Kingdom (UK). This move also works in tandem with the objectives of the new Nation Education Policy (NEP). But several school heads raised the concern of school fees that would resultantly rise. They said that parents belonging to the upper class will be delighted by this move and others might have face problems.
