changes in the education system
Few of the changes in the education system of Government schools in Delhi have boosted the quality of education and seems to be boon for the people of Delhi. Likewise recently, Government have introduced a nursery curricular, workshops and training sessions for teachers have been doubled and parent-teacher meetings have been made essential.
“The foundation of learning is built in the early years and no other government across India has recognised the need for a pre-primary curriculum to be implemented. Earlier, teachers had to go and collect census data. That practice was stopped,” said educationist Preeti Prasad.
After winning the Delhi election, the present governing party AAM has shown a major commitment in the field of education with 25% of the total budget in education alone. This shows the development they want in the education scheme. A survey recently showed the results that the classrooms are cleaner, have more comfortable seats than the older government.
Many senior classes even have a boast of projectors, smart boards and air-conditioned labs besides indoor and outdoor sports facilities. Some schools even have reported to be consisting of swimming pools, bigger grounds which sometimes even lack in private schools. One such school inside the IARI Pusa campus underwent a makeover after this new government came to power. It received a facelift along with 53 other schools.
These amazing transformation has not lost in vain. The results show it all. The past year the results of Class 12th Government School have even surpassed the Private School’s passing candidates by 2%. This is a huge number when comes to the evaluation of how successful this makeover has been for the government schools. In a search of implementing good educational scheme, government have even sent Many teachers abroad for training — something that had never been earlier.
Last year, the Delhi government conducted ‘Mission Buniyaad’ campaign to help students \ who were not up to the mark due to the nationwide no-detention policy. A Happiness Curriculum has been launched, which claims to turn students against corruption, violence and terrorism. The curriculum will focus with over 8 lakhs students, on meditation and mental exercise, includes mindfulness practice, gratitude, morals and value-based stories and activities. An activity-based curriculum is also on its way to inculcate habits of cleanliness and hygiene among the students.
This following year, a new Entrepreneurship Scheme is set to launch which encourages students to be an entrepreneur and help them reach that Goal.
‘Chief Minister’s Urban Leaders Fellowship’ is one such programme which is launched by the Governing Body and allows the graduated from foreign universities join under this scheme. This fellowship consists of 26 members and also termed as “Special 26”. These bright and young minds have the objective to spruce up policies and drive its governance agenda in the Capital.. They help the government in suggesting ways to eliminate a few problems that the government alone doesn’t get the solution. They even train the teachers to deliver the best of the education to the students.
Few parents were asked the question of how they feel about this makeover of the Government schools in Delhi. Their replies were very delightful, with Raju Yadav, owner of a small shop in Laxmi Nagar in east Delhi, saying that he is happy that his daughter is studying in a school with good facilities.” Adding a point to this Roshan Lal, 40, a rickshaw puller said “My son is now very fond of going to school. Not just that. When he comes home, he teaches me a few things as well. We are indeed blessed.”
“My wife and I are not educated. My daughter is in Class III. When I see the dramatic changes in the school, the AC, the playing area, everything, I feel very happy.”
