Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has recently announced that Delhi government schools will be de-affiliated from the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). From the 2021-22 academic session, these schools will be affiliated with the Delhi Board of School Education (DBSE). According to CM’s statement, in the starting phase, around 20-25 Delhi government schools will be affiliated to DBSE from the academic session of 2021-22. Throughout this article, Kejriwal also aspires that all the state-run and private schools of Delhi will come under DBSE within four to five years.

Why DBSE Delhi Established?
In an online media briefing, Kejriwal told the Press Trust of India that the present education system is focused on learning by rote that needs to be changed. Adding to this, he says high-end-techniques will be used to teach students under this new education board.
Kejriwal says that the three primary motives of DBSE are to produce staunch patriots, good people and prepare students not to be reliant on the job market for employment. The decision to form DBSE was taken at a cabinet meeting chaired by the chief minister himself.
DBSE Board Implementing
Here in this section, we are proving how many schools in Delhi implement the DBSE board for the 2021-22 academic year. Let’s have a look.
There are about 1,000 government schools and around 1,700 private schools in Delhi, most of which are affiliated with the CBSE. But as per Kejriwal’s statement, not all Delhi schools will be brought under the new education board in one go.
According to the Indian Express report, the government has set aside INR 62 crores to set up a separate state board of education.
The new board will be chaired by the education minister Manish Sisodia and overseen by a governing body. The everyday activities of the Delhi Board of School Education will be coordinated by the executive body headed by a CEO.
According to the plan, the private schools of Delhi will have an option to get affiliated with the DBSE or not.
In an interview with the Indian Express, Shailendra Sharma, the principal advisor to the Directorate of Education, says the curriculum committee has submitted a set of recommendations till class VIII. The curriculum for the secondary and senior secondary will need to be worked on now.
Many have this question whether forming a new board will require a nod from the Union education ministry. As per the PTI official, forming a state education board completely falls under the state government’s domain, so, no, the Delhi government will not require permission from the Union education ministry. Education is a matter of state affair, and the Centre does not interfere in it. As long as the cabinet passes the board, every state is entitled to form their education board.

Positive Impact of DBSE Board
Once the DBSE is functional, every central university like DU will also take students passing from DBSE.
In the online briefing, Kejriwal said that the announcement of the Delhi Board of School Education would influence the education system in Delhi and create a deep and positive impact on the country’s education system in the coming times.
According to Kejriwal, the Delhi Board of School Education will be of international standards, and cooperation will be sought from various global bodies.
The Delhi government has studied best practices at international levels and will bring them to the board and schools in Delhi.
“This education system will be responsible for suggesting the course and career of every child as per his aptitude and needs and teach him with emphasis on understanding, not through rote and personality development,” the chief minister said.
A notification related to the new education board’s establishment is expected soon, and the 2021-22 academic session of CBSE will begin in April.
