Feeling proud, says Arvind Kejriwal after Delhi govt schools secure 98% result in CBSE Class 12 exams

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s major promise in the 2015 election was that his government will make government schools in the national capital better than the private schools. At that time, there were major doubt among people regarding this as it was difficult for them to believe that government schools could perform better than Delhi’s expensive private schools. However, since the Aam Admi Party has formed the government, the boards results have been improving constantly. And yet again, the CBSE Class 12 results announced yesterday have proved why the Delhi model of education reforms is the best in the country. 
Sharing the news of government school’s spectacular performance, Kejriwal said, “Feeling v proud to announce that the CBSE class 12 result of Delhi govt schools this year is 98% - highest ever so far. Its historic. Congratulations to my Team Education, all students, teachers, parents and education officers. Proud of you all.”
Delhi government schools pass percentage in Class 12 CBSE exams have set new records. Taking to twitter, Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia explained the significance of this year’s remarkable performance.

10 reasons why Delhi govt schools are the best in the country:

  1. Highest Education Budget in India: Delhi’s education budget is 25% of the government’s total budget for the past 6 years - highest in the entire country
  2. Doubled classrooms in 6 years: In just 6 years, Delhi’s schools now have more than double the number of classrooms from just 17,000 to 37,000
  3. World-class infra: Modern infrastructure like swimming pools, auditoriums, laboratories, libraries, etc have made children enjoy their school environment
  4. Teacher training at Cambridge, Singapore, Finland: Delhi’s teachers get trained at the world’s best institutions and bring back their exposure to teach the children of Delhi
  5. Direct Involvement of Political Leadership: CM Kejriwal personally interacts regularly with children, teachers and parents of government schools, which lifts their morale. Just last year, he had attended a parent teacher meeting in a Delhi govt school in ITO. Dy CM Manish Sisodia too regularly visits schools and monitors all developments.
  6. Expert Advisors: Led by Oxford-educated advisor and AAP MLA Atishi, the Core Education team of Delhi govt has brought the country’s best talent in education reforms from NGOs and other model schools and deployed them for the benefit of Delhi’s children. 
  7. Mega Parent Teacher Meeting: Delhi govt believes in involving parents very closely in the children’s performance. Delhi is the only state which holds regular mega parent teacher meetings for facilitating regular parent-teacher interaction, similar to the big private schools. 
  8. Ex-army men as Estate Managers: Like the big private schools of Delhi, the management of every government school is in the hands of ex-army men who are recruited by CM Kejriwal as estate managers. School principals only look after the academics of the school, while estate managers look after the other aspects.
  9. Innovation In Teaching: Delhi govt schools have been running innovative programs to instill specific skills among its students. For example, it launched the Mission Chunauti and Mission Buniyaad to ensure that every child is able to read and write. Similarly, many other innovative teaching methods are adopted. 
  10. Technological intervention: All Delhi govt school teachers use mobile tablets to aid them in teaching students. Projectors are used in most higher classes to facilitate digital education, so that children are exposed to the knowledge of the world.
