Delhi goes for State Board
Delhi Government is setting up the Delhi Board of School Education (DBSE) on the lines of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). This year itself about 25 Delhi government schools will be de-affiliated from CBSE and brought under DBSE, according to Mr Arvind Kejriwal, Chief Minister of Delhi. DBSE is not a replacement for CBSE but being set up in the framework of New Education Policy (2020). DBSE will promote modern teaching methods and assessment practices. The interest, need and specialisation of every student would be taken into account by the education system to provide insights on what courses they should opt for to ultimately pursue their career choice. If DBSE proves successful, others states could follow suit in adopting a policy of having their own education boards.
