Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia interacted with school principals and teachers and exhorted them to set a new bar of excellence for the whole country.
“In the SoSEs, the role of the teachers is going to change, and he/she will become a facilitator of learning for every student. Gradually, all the schools in Delhi will follow this model and adopt a learner-centric education system,” Mr Sisodia said. .
“Every member of Team SoSE has to own this idea and immerse oneself in this journey of excellence. One will have to de-condition and unlearn a lot of things, and only then we can create new pathways of excellence for our students,” Mr Sisodia added.
The Delhi government had earlier said the DBSE will start with 30 schools, which includes 20 SoSEs.
