Delhi government welcomes amendment in RTE Bill
In a series of tweets, Sisodia said the introduction of no detention without changing teaching practices, books, evaluation system and proper teachers training was a "bad idea and it is a correct step to scrap it".
He said that the Delhi government was among the first to oppose the no detention policy.
"Delhi government was among the first to oppose no detention policy. After taking over as (the) Education Minister in February 2015, I had written to then HRD Minister to restrict it till Class 3," he said.
The Rajya Sabha on Thursday passed the RTE (Amendment) Bill that does away with the no-detention policy.
