New Delhi,23 May:A changed educational strategy seems to have paid off for Delhi government schools, where the percentage increase of successful students in CBSE’s Class 12 exams as compared to the previous year is more than private and aided schools in the capital.
"The result of government schools has shown marked improvement over last year by nearly three per cent. It is significant because corresponding results of public schools as well as Kendriya Vidyalayas have decreased by 0.6 per cent and 2.14 per cent respectively," Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said today at a press conference.
"Clearly, our better educational strategy, regular monitoring of teachers and student performance, besides teacher commitment have paid off ".
Studying in government schools is no more a stigma but a pride for students as well parents," Dikshit said while lauding stakeholders for the excellent performance.
Against 46 in 2007, as many as 73 government schools in this year have reported cent per cent results.
"While schools in rural areas like SKV Pehladpur, Pooth Khurd and Badali have achieved 100 per cent results, those in resettlement colonies like Sultanpur and Mangolpuri have achieved 95 per cent results," Dikshit said.
As a consequence, she said the position of Delhi government schools has improved from fifth position last year to third position this year in the country.
The overall pass percentage of boys is 80.65 per cent and for girls is 86.93 per cent in Delhi.
