The true picture of government run schools in Delhi came to public when in a survey it was disclosed that almost half of the students of class 6 were unable to red while some could read their Hindi textbooks and English of class 2 level.
The survey was done on 1011 schools in which total of 201,997 student studies. The report revealed that 13 per cent could not recognize the alphabets and 67 per cent could not even solve simple sums.
The survey was the part of government's initiative which is known as Chaunauti 2018. This initiative's main aim is to improve the quality of education in government schools. Children's will be given special lessons so that they can reach to their class level.
The same survey was also conducted on the student from class 7, 8 and 9 and their results will be declared shortly.
The teachers shift the blame to no detention policy and low quality of education at the primary schools.
Shailendra Kumar Sharm of the NGO said "The no-detention policy was never meant to be a no-teaching, no-learning policy. Changes that were required in classrooms and teaching methods never happened and now we have children who can't read despite being in senior classes."
