Sisodia addresses London forum on education | Latest News Delhi

NEW DELHI: Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia on Monday discussed the reforms of the Government of Education implemented by the AAP government in New Delhi at the Education World Forum in London, which saw the participation of education ministers and experts from around the world.

In his address at the event, Sisodia said that the Delhi government has strengthened the education system by making education a priority. He said direct involvement with school leaders, widespread exposure to teachers and principals, and world-class training and increasing the autonomy of principals are some of the initial steps the government has taken to transform school infrastructure.

The government has significantly increased the financial strength of principals, hired auxiliary staff and resource persons, and focused on enhancing and recognizing the ability of school principals and teachers to deliver rich dividends, he said.

“About 25% of the total state budget is earmarked for education every year, which is the highest among state governments in India,” Sisodia said.

“Today’s education is not just about educating the underprivileged and under-educated, but also educating those who are getting the wrong education,” Sisodia said.

Until 2015, government schools were washed away by various problems, but the Delhi government said it had changed the face of public schools. “Today, Delhi government schools are world-class. The schools have modern buildings, smart classrooms and grounds with excellent sports facilities,” Sisodia said.

“Delhi government schools are better than private schools, which is why parents send their children to Delhi government schools with pride. Compared to 2015, the number of students in current Delhi government schools has increased by 21%, Sisodia said.
