New Delhi: A delegation of Education Department officials from Madhya Pradesh visited Delhi on Friday to understand Arvind Kejriwal government's education reforms, officials said.
The officials from Madhya Pradesh interacted with Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and visited schools and interacted with officials from the Directorate of Education.
The delegation was exploring the scope of learning and replicating the transforming education model of Delhi in Madhya Pradesh, the government said. They also apprised Sisodia about the schemes that the Madhya Pradesh government had launched to reform school education.
“Politics must be on the basis of education,” Sisodia said. He said a government must be assessed on the basis of its tangible policy achievements, rather than sectarian ideals.
In order to improve quality of education, Delhi government introduced happiness and entrepreneurship curricula -- first of its kind initiatives in India, he said.
Sisodia accepted the invitation to collaborate with the government of Madhya Pradesh to improve the education system there. “Both governments can plan teacher exchange programmes to facilitate better understanding,” he said.
