In a press conference, CM Kejriwal said, ‘in the beginning, 21-22 state government schools will be affiliated to Delhi Board of School Education (DBSE) and in the next 4-5 years all the schools will be covered under it.”
There are around 1,000 Delhi government schools and about 1,700 private schools most of them affiliated to CBSE, in the city. The new board will have a governing body headed by the Education Minister of the Delhi government and an executive body headed by a Chief Executive Officer, CM added.
However, the All India Parents’ Association Opposed (AIAO) the setting up of the Delhi board of education DBSE, stating it will “lower the standard of education” and claimed that most of the biggest schools in the country are under the central board of secondary education (CBSE). Currently, schools in Delhi are either affiliated to the CBSE or the Indian School Certificate Examination (ICSE). To ensure the standards of a separate board in Delhi, Education Minister and CM said it will bring positive output in student life as the DBSE board has been designed with global parameters.
