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.
