Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announces Delhi’s own education board

In the cabinet meeting held on Saturday, the Delhi government gave approval to the constitution of the national capital’s own school education board.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has announced that the national capital will have its own board for schools, which will be called Delhi Board of School Education. 

In the cabinet meeting held on Saturday, the Delhi government gave approval to the constitution of the national capital’s own school education board. 

CM Kejriwal said initially 21-22 state government schools will be affiliated to the Delhi Board of School Education (DBSE), scrapping CBSE affiliation in the coming academic year (2021-22). And in the next four-five years all the schools will be brought under it. He also hoped that all schools will voluntarily get affiliated to this board.

Kejriwal stated that the focus of the education board will be on learning, understanding of concepts and personality development. The students will be assessed through the year and the education system will be at par with international standards with usage of high level technology.

The school principals will be empowered from a level of 5000 to 50000 under their governance, claimed Kejriwal adding that earlier the principal had to seek permission for small changes from Directorate of Education. 

In July last year, the Delhi government had constituted two panels to prepare scheme and framework of the state education board and curriculum reforms. The plans for creating a new board of education and curriculum reforms was proposed in its annual budget.
