“I’m the girl in the yellow top.  I scored 98.6% in Class 12th Board Exams. It is such a memorable day for me. It is said, where there is a will, there is a way,” a proud Delhi government school student shouted out on her social media yesterday. All prominent members of the AAP party including Preethi Sharma Menon, party’s national spokesperson, highlighted her post immediately.

Five years ago Arvind Kejriwal, the then newly elected chief minister and his deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia had a dream––making the public/government schools the best in the country thus educating the poorest of the poor with free and best education available. More than 30 percent of the budget was allotted to this vision, which by itself is a record compared to any other state.

The Aam Admi Party (The Common Man’s Party) came into power almost six years ago with a promise and vision of providing quality education as a matter of right to every student. The results seem to say that this dream is being achieved slowly and steadily in the capital state.

As reported by the local newspapers, Delhi government schools have crossed the 90% pass percentage mark for the first time in 2018. This increased to 94.29% in 2019 and this year it shot up to 97.91% beating private schools by way over 5%!

This average also became slightly higher than Thiruvananthapuram, Bengaluru and Chennai who were the top scorers so far.

Pass Percent in Pvt Schools in Delhi:
Delhi East: 91.69%
Delhi West: 92.12%

Pass Percent in Kejriwal’s Government Schools in Delhi
Delhi East: 97.68%
Delhi West: 97.91%

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who worked industriously for the public schools’ furtherance is overjoyed with the amazing results.

“Over the past 5 years, we at Delhi Government schools have been competing with ourselves to break our own record each time. This year is no exception. Congrats to students, parents, and Team Education, “ he tweeted.

With free education surpassing the quality of the much expensive private education, it’s no wonder that middle, low and no income groups are lining up for admission into these popular, well-rounded public schools of Delhi.
