Many agree that the Kejriwal government did bring education into focus and infused energy into a moribund system that ran a thousand-odd schools in Delhi. But there is a flip side to the feel-good story.
As private schools come under a sharp focus following the brutal Ryan International murder, Delhi’s deputy CM and education minister Manish Sisodia talks on various measures for improving the quality of government schools and the lot of the teachers.
The digital content to be procured by NCERT will be made available at DIKSHA, Swayam Prabha educational TV channels and other remote learning platforms, created by the government to provide free access to students.
Universities and schools across the country have been closed since March 16 when the central government announced a countrywide classroom shutdown as one of the measures to contain the COVID-19 outbreak.
Several schools are mulling over the idea of initiating a hybrid model where classroom programmes would run for children who are willing to attend school while an online programme would continue for children whose parents are not in favour of sending them to classes.
