In one of the largest infrastructure expansions, the Aam Aadmi Party government added 5,695 classrooms to schools run by the Delhi government. The new classrooms were inaugurated by education and deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia on October 7, 2017 from Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya, Mandawali.
In addition to this, Sisodia also launched hundred specialized libraries in the primary sections of Sarvodaya Vidyalayas. “Libraries have a huge role in developing evolved young minds. The Delhi government is keen to inculcate a library culture among children, which will go a long way in ensuring that children broaden their horizons beyond their syllabus,” he said. The department intends to open 430+ Sarvodaya Schools over the next three years.
The AAP government has earned considerable applaud in its previous years for earmarking 26 percent of its total budget to education and for the constant upgradation of its schools. In the Education World India School Rankings 2018, Rajkiya Pratibha Vikas Vidyalaya (RPVV), Dwarka, was adjudged country’s best government school, the first non-Kendriya Vidyalaya to reach the top of the league table.Posted in National
