The Delhi Government headed by Arvind Kejriwal has always been making false claims about the quality of education in schools.

However, now the government has admitted that let alone proper education to make students employable, most students in Delhi schools cannot even read their books.

Mission Buniyaad (foundation) launched by Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is supposed to help students even in higher classes read books.

“Across government schools in India, many kids till 8th class can barely read their own textbooks properly. Before we talk about education, we need to address this shocking reality,” AAP said in a statement released today.

The Education Minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia, has announced the launch of “Mission Buniyaad” for improving reading levels of children studying in Delhi government schools as well as municipal schools.

The program will target hundreds of thousands of students to provide them reading skills and knowledge of basic arithmetic operations such as addition, subtraction, etc. The entire program will run from Classes 3 to 5 in MCD schools and in Classes 6 to 9 in Delhi government schools.

Announcing the program, Sisodia had referred to the National Achievement Survey (NAS) which has shown that the entire country, including Delhi, has a crisis of learning in schools. The NAS survey reveals that about half of all children in schools are not able to read their grade level textbooks.
