Delhi’s own education board – ‘Delhi Board of School Education’ has been officially registered. As per the Directorate of Education (DoE), an official notification detailing its modalities is expected to be out soon. Confirming the same, a senior DoE official said, “The Board was officially registered on Tuesday and is expected to bring in a most-awaited reform in the school assessment system.” The Delhi Board of School Education or DBSE was approved by the Cabinet on 6 March 2021.
Congratulating the students, teachers, and other stakeholders, the Directorate of Education termed this move as the ‘most awaited reform in their assessment system’.
A state board for Delhi is expected to bring welcome changes in the schooling system in the capital.
Currently, there are about 1,000 government and 1,700 private schools in Delhi, nearly all of which are affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). However, several families have been unable to afford the school and exam fees under CBSE, which is considered to be a major reason behind the surge in dropout rate. Currently, under CBSE, the Class 10 exam fee is Rs 1,500 to 1,800 while the Class 12 exam fee ranges between Rs 1,500 to 2,400. With the introduction of Delhi’s own board, there is expected to be a considerable dip in school fee structure.
