The Arvind Kejriwal government announced the creation of the Delhi Board of School Education (DBSE). The Delhi’s Directorate of Education announced on Twitter: “Now Delhi has its own educational authority. The Delhi Education Authority has been registered.”
The Directorate of Education congratulated the students, teachers and other interested parties, adding that this will bring the most anticipated reform of its evaluation system. In the upcoming 2021-2022 academic session, 20 to 25 schools will be under the new board, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal previously said.
On March 6, Kejriwal announced that the Delhi Cabinet had approved the formation of its own school education committee – the Delhi School Education Board.
The board of directors will have a board of directors chaired by the Minister of Education. It will also have an executive body for day-to-day tasks and will be headed by a CEO. Both bodies will have experts: from the professional sector, the education sector, directors of public and private schools and bureaucrats.
There are currently around 1,000 public schools and 1,700 private schools in Delhi, almost all affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). Last July, the Delhi government established two committees to prepare the curriculum and framework for the formation of the National Board of Education and curriculum reforms.
