The Assam government has introduced the Assam State School Education Board Bill, 2024, in the Assembly, aiming to merge the existing Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA) and the Assam Higher Secondary Education Council (AHSEC) to form the Assam State School Education Board (ASSEB). This new body will regulate and supervise education up to Class 12 in the state. The move follows the leakage of question papers during the Class 10 board exams in 2023, prompting the government to restructure and enhance oversight in the education system. ASSEB will have a chairman and vice chairmen nominated by the government, with 21 members serving three-year terms. The bill underscores the government's commitment to improving standards and quality in Assam's school education. This initiative reflects the government's commitment to enhancing the quality and standards of school education in Assam.
