The number of private schools owned by politicians and those where political leaders or government officials are members of the governing board must be surveyed, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today said.
He was speaking at a conference on education at the Constitution Club of India here.
“While it is being surveyed as to how many children study in private schools, but it also must be known to people as to how many private schools are owned by politicians and those where political leaders or government officials are members of the governing board,” he said.
The AAP leader said while the privatisation of education cannot be stopped, steps should be taken to boost education in government schools. “In some schools, we have 100 students in a classroom, I think we should not have more than 40 students in a classroom. We must build confidence among wards of government schools as claimed by private ones, only then people would send their children to government schools,” he said.
