On Saturday, March 6, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that Delhi will have its own school education board.
Kejriwal added 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.”
Initially, 21-22 state government schools will be affiliated with the Delhi Board of School Education (DBSE) following which in the next four-five years all the schools will be brought under it, Kejriwal said at a press conference.
Delhi CM also said, “Schools will be selected after discussion with principals, teachers & parents. We hope that all schools will voluntarily get affiliated to this Board within 4-5 years.”
The board will have a governing body, chaired by the education minister and will also have an executive body for day- to-day functioning, which will be headed by a CEO. The board will aim at imparting such education that prepares “fiercely patriotic” and self-dependent students who serve the society and the country in a selfless manner, he said.
