Mr Sisodia had earlier said that “It will be a unique experiment in itself, and will probably be the first virtual school in the world. Work has already begun on the design of this school and it will be my endeavour to ensure that this school is ready and functional by the next session”.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kerjriwal had touted it to be a ‘dream project’. "We want to create the world's first virtual Delhi Model School. It is a dream project that has been presented in this budget, a classroom without walls,” he had said.
This year, the government had allocated Rs 16,377 crore for education in the state budget to create Delhi's own education board, creating a virtual model school and a teachers’ university. It had also proposed the introduction of a patriotic-based curriculum.
