Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal stated that his government will work on improving the education system and on changing the content of education.
While interacting with the government school students who qualified for IIT JEE, Kejriwal said, “There is some problem in the content of our education. Soon after we are done with the issues related to the educational system, we will work on improving the content of our education although it will take time.”
“Students after doing BA and B Tech are not getting jobs. It is not that there are no jobs in the society, but the main problem is that what is being taught in the school, college does not have any use in practical life,” he said.
“We are following the same educational system which was imposed by the British on us. The educational system should be one where the students can earn after getting a degree and not have to run for jobs,” he said.
Kejriwal also said that education is one of the most important aspects for the development of a nation and every developed country has 100 per cent literacy rate.
“In every developed country, education is with the government. We also believe that education is the responsibility of the government,” he further said.
Praising the work done by Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia, he said: “Earlier, when I was new as Chief Minister, people used to come to me with requests to help their kids get admission in various private schools. Now I get requests from people to help their kids get admission in government schools,” he added.
