The Delhi Board of School Education (DBSE) will begin operations, as announced by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday. The Directorate of Education in Delhi tweeted that Delhi has its very own education board from today. The Delhi Education Board came into existence from this date.
The education directorate congratulated students, teachers, and other stakeholders, stating that this will bring about the long-awaited reform in their assessment system. The new board will oversee 20 to 25 schools during the 2021-22 academic year, according to Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal.
The chief minister announced on March 6 that the Delhi Cabinet had authorized the formation of its own school education council, the Delhi Board of School Education.
The Education Minister will preside over the Governing Body. The Executive Body will be in charge of day-to-day operations and will be led by a CEO. Both bodies will include experts from the professional and educational sectors, as well as principals of public and private schools and bureaucrats.
Schools in Delhi are currently administered by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). In Delhi, there are 1,000 public schools and 1,700 private schools.
Last year, the Delhi government formed two committees to establish the scheme and structure for the establishment of the state education board and curriculum reforms.
