Arvind Kejriwal said:
“We were anxious whether we will succeed in doing that. In just 4 years with solid support from teachers and principals we have reached a point where government schools are just as good, if not better, than private schools. We have transformed the entire environment of government schools.”
Speaking about the role of teachers in society, till 1830, before the introduction of British education system teaching was the most sought after profession in India.
“Delhi government plans to revive that unique system in Delhi to ensure that the cream of society will be brought into the teaching profession, benefiting the future generations.”
Manish Sisodia said :
The most important factor behind the revolutionary ‘Delhi Education Model‘ is taking the teachers and the principals into confidence in order to improve the infrastructure and the learning environment in government schools.
