CBSE slams reports, tweets on ‘modern girl’ definition; says it did not recommend the book

CBSE has released a statement slamming tweets and media reports that criticised the board for an essay from a book by a private publisher meant for school children that had a controversial essay defining who is a ‘modern girl’.

The board clarified that it has not recommended any such book, adding, that “any reference to CBSE in the reports in totally incorrect”.

“It is clarified that CBSE does not publish books and nor does it recommend books by any private publishers to the affiliated schools. Therefore, any reference to CBSE in this context is baseless,” read the statement.

The statement follows after tweets carrying pictures of an essay from a textbook called “Current School Essays and Letters” on a ‘Modern Girl’ went viral.
