The South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) will open one English medium school in each of its wards from the new academic session, according to an official statement on Monday. Initially, 104 English medium schools will be opened in SDMC wards. The move is being made in view of the impact and importance of English in the present scenario.
The municipal corporation has made adequate arrangements in its schools, such as installation of RO water system, playgrounds, smart classrooms, free mid-day meal, distribution of school bags, dress, books, stationery along with scholarships for the students.. Despite these facilities, parents were sending their wards to private schools simply because they were English Medium. This move has also been anticipated as an attempt to reudce the disparity created by the competition of public and private schools. Besides this, English medium sections will also be started according to the need in other 464 SDMC schools.
