The Chief Minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal, declared on Saturday that the schools in Delhi will now have a school education board of their own. He announced that, as an initiation of the process, almost 20-25 government schools in Delhi will be de-affiliated from the CBSE board to be affiliated to the new state education board.
Deputy Chief Minister, Manish Sisodia announced during the Annual Budget Meet that the government is keeping aside Rs. 62 crores to set up a state education board in Delhi. On Saturday, the CM announced that this process of setting up a separate education board for the schools in Delhi will begin from the upcoming academic session.
“We will not move all the schools to this board at once. In this first year, 20-25 government schools will be brought under this board. Their affiliation to the CBSE will be removed and they will be affiliated to this board. We will decide which schools these will be in consultations with their principals, teachers and parents. And we believe that within four or five years, all private and government schools will voluntarily join this board,” Kejriwal stated.
