Delhi will have its own school education board like other states, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced today. The state government approved the formation of the Delhi Board of School Education during a cabinet meet. The capital has 1,000 government schools and 1,700 private schools. All government schools and most private schools are affiliated to the CBSE, the Chief Minister said. 20 to 25 government schools will be made part of the new state education board in the coming academic year and their CBSE affiliation will be scrapped, he said. The schools that will be brought under the state board will be decided after discussions with school principals, teachers and parents.
