Delegation of teachers from US visits Delhi government's school of excellence

A delegation of 13 teachers from the United States visited Delhi government's School of Excellence in Khichripur on Thursday. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia welcomed them as they visited several classrooms for an interactive session with the students.

"The teachers were keenly interested in recent interventions of the government like the happiness curriculum and entrepreneurship mindset curriculum. "They also visited 'connected classroom' where the teacher can use audiovisual tools for more immersive learning for the students," a Delhi government official said.

Sisodia explained to the delegation the disparities between private and government schools in India. "The problem with private schools is that they have a lot of filters like money, a socio-economic background which creates entrance barriers for the children.

"In government schools, we don't have any filters. Any child who is born in India can have access to government schools. We have given a model where every child from any segment of the society can get quality education," he said. The delegation will visit a District Institute of Education and Training (DIET) on Friday.
