Kejriwal celebrates Delhi Education model's success

Kejriwal celebrates Delhi Education model's success

New Delhi, Jul 14 (UNI) Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal celebrated the success of Delhi's Education Model with the Education Team of the capital via a video conference here on Tuesday.

Along with the CM, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia who also presided over the meeting congratulated the senior officers of the DoE, Heads of Schools and teachers of the Delhi Government.

Mr Kejriwal congratulated Delhi's Education team for securing a 98 per cent pass percentage, the highest ever- "These results secured by our Delhi Govt schools are historic and unbelievable. I would like to congratulate the Education Department for its dedicated efforts in transforming education in the last five years."



“Earlier, Government schools used to be looked down upon. Students studying in govt schools were perceived as the ones whose parents could not afford to send them to private schools. That feeling around the quality of govt schools being substandard and not at par, has successfully subsided now. The class 12th results of Delhi Govt school students just show that they are no less than other private school students and that they can achieve anything,” he said.

“The results have proved that our students are no less than anyone. The poor people have also started taking more interest in their child's studies because they are constantly motivated by the efforts put in by the team education. They attend parent-teacher meetings and are thoroughly involved in their child's education. Our teachers have also proved that their contribution can make such a big difference and give us such outstanding results. Our hopes have risen, and now the team is expected to secure 100 per cent results. The bar has been raised, and everyone is hoping for even better performance,” Mr Kejriwal said.

Mr Kejriwal highlighted that this could be the first time that a state has achieved such a massive pass percentage of 98 per cent and asked the team to analyse if any other state in India has achieved it before.

"In 70 years of Indian History,it is for the first time that a state has got 98 per cent pass percentage and if this is a new record not achieved by any other state, be it at CBSE board or state board, then it calls for a greater celebration," he said.

Congratulating Team Education, Mr Sisodia said, "The entire nation is proud of you, Team Education. When the economy is disrupted and the times are uncertain, such outstanding results just prove that our young generation's future is secured. Our schools have secured 98 per cent pass percentage which is six per cent higher than the private schools of Delhi which have secured 92.2 per cent pass percentage.

The Education Minister highlighted that the performance of 916 Government schools of Delhi, under the Directorate of Education's guidance, Delhi has been the best with a pass percentage at 97.92 per cent, the highest ever. Our pass percentage is the highest ever.

Mr Sisodia stressed on the significant improvement in the marks scored and the overall pass percentage of Delhi Government schools in the last five years.

“The Pass percentage went up by 3.68 per cent (from 94.24 per cent in 2019 to 97.92 per cent in 2020) and 396 schools achieved 100 per cent results against 203 last year. 897 schools achieved 90 per cent and above against 732 schools last year,” Mr Sisodia said.

Mr Sisodia also highlighted the remarkable improvement in the Qualitative aspect of the result. The Average QI went up to 341.79 as compared to last year's QI at 306.53.
