Cm Arvind Kejriwal

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal launched the ‘Delhi virtual school’ in the national capital, Wednesday. It is the first such school in the country. The Delhi government has started virtual classrooms for students, particularly girls, who are unable to attend school said CM.

“This school will reach out and provide access to education to those children, especially girls who are not allowed to go to school due to various reasons due to family circumstances. Many children even though they shouldn’t be working at the time, take up the job to support their family, so this school will provide education to all of them,” CM Kejriwal stated in a briefing to press.

“The recordings of the class would also be uploaded to a website, in case a student misses class due to any reason,” he added. This will be a “revolutionary step in the education system of Delhi”, under the “virtual school” model, students can attend online classes and learn, Kejriwal further added.

“The virtual school will be affiliated to Delhi Board of School Education Board. Any student aged between 13 and 18 years and has passed class 8 from any recognised school can apply for admission,” he said.

The students can begin the applying today (August 31). Any student from India can apply on the website and get enrolled, the Delhi CM elaborated. This form of schooling will start for students between classes 9 to 12.

In order to make India No. 1 across the globe, “we have to make education accessible to everyone, every single child should get an education. 75 years have been wasted and we should not waste more time.”Kejriwal added.
