education announcements - good and not good

kapil sibal coming into heading the MHRD has seen an extended level of noise in the education space. which is good.
and the Right to Free and Compulsory Education Bill 2008 was passed in early august in the midst of all this euphoria. which is not good.

and yesterday, we are bombarded with 3 new announcements:
1. Std 10 board exams optional for CBSE students. which is a great concept but not good (cos i feel that there has been little public debate on this).
2. 7 new IIMs are being planned. which is not good (cos their track record with the new IITs is abysmal)
3. Tamilnadu government to combine the various education boards. which is very good.
