The Delhi unit of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) held a demonstration today to highlight the worsening education standards in Delhi schools.

The party says it organized a massive dharna outside the residence of education minister Manish Sisodia who has been consistently making false claims about the quality of school education.

BJP said that the Delhi Government headed by chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has brought education system to such a bad state that 70% students have failed, although BJP did not give details of this percentage calculation. The demonstration was held along with parents of students, BJP said.

Meanwhile, RMN Foundation – a humanitarian organization – has released a new research report on the school education of Delhi.

[ Fault Lines: A Research Report on the Quality of Education in Delhi Schools ]

The report has been prepared after almost 3 years of extensive research which includes door-to-door surveys, interactions with hundreds of Delhi school students, parents, and teachers, and a number of other educational outreach programs.

The report highlights numerous pitfalls in the current state of school education including irrelevant syllabuses, poor content quality of books, defective pedagogical methods, incompetence of teachers, disturbing teacher-student ratios, and overall lack of administration in Delhi schools.

It finds that since there is no connection between the education being imparted in schools and a student’s employability, the joblessness has been spreading like a dreaded disease.

The report offers a number of remedial measures that the government must take to improve the quality of education in Delhi schools in order to save the lives and careers of millions of students. Although the report is focused on Delhi schools, its findings can be applied to all the schools in India.
