The Arvind Kejriwal government on Tuesday, March 16 announced the setting up of the Delhi Board of School Education (DBSE).
The Delhi’s Directorate of Education announced on Twitter, “Now Delhi has its own education board. Delhi Education Board got registered today.”
The directorate of education has congratulated students, teachers, and other stakeholders adding that this will bring the most awaited reform in their assessment system.
In the coming 2021-22 academic session, 20 to 25 schools will be under the new board, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had earlier said.
On March 6, Kejriwal has informed that Delhi Cabinet has given approval for the constitution of its own school education board – the Delhi Board of School Education.
The Board will have a governing body, chaired by the Education Minister as well as an executive body for day-to-day functions. It will be headed by a CEO. Both the governing and executive bodies will have experts from professional industries, the education sector, principals of government and private schools and bureaucrats.
Kejriwal had earlier said that the new arrangement will bring revolutionary changes in Delhi’s current education system and will make it reach new heights. He said, “There are around 1000 govt schools and 1700 private schools in Delhi. All government schools and most private schools here are affiliated with Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). Their CBSE affiliation will be scrapped & they’ll be affiliated to Delhi Board of School Education.”
