In a first of its kind initiative, Delhi government will open 5 English medium schools which will be called 'Schools of Excellence' and have 25 students in primary classes (1-6) and 40 in senior classes (6-12). The government has decided to keep the size of the classes small so that every student can get personal attention from teachers.
"The turnout of the students will be kept less in these schools. These schools will be a demonstration and a proof of confidence for the rest of the (government) schools. Our plan is to inaugurate them in July once the vacations are over," Atishi Marlena, advisor to education minister Manish Sisodia, told DNA.
The Capital, so far, has 1,050 Hindi-medium government schools.
The five schools are located at-Madanpur Khadar, Khichdipur in Patparganj, two in Rohini and one in Dwarka.
