NEW DELHI: The education model in Delhi has gone through “revolutionary changes” in the last seven years because of strong research and training support provided by the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), said Education Minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday.
Speaking at the 35th foundation of the SCERT, Sisodia stated that the Delhi education model is a topic of discussion not only in India but all across the globe and every educational initiative in the national capital starts with the research council.
“All our successful experiments for the Delhi Education model start from SCERT. Today, when we wish to do anything new in the country, we start it with education and if we do anything new in education, we start it with SCERT,” he appreciated.
Heaping praises on the council, the deputy chief minister said that “revolutionary changes” like introduction of new curricula of Happiness, Entrepreneurship Mindset and Deshbhakti was made possible because of strong research and training support by the SCERT.
Improvement of quality of education depends on the role of research and training wing in any country’s education department, he opined.
“Seven years ago, no parent in the country wanted to send their children to a government school. But in the past 7 years not only Delhi government schools have changed but their educational standards have also improved with the efforts of SCERT Delhi. It is leading the way for the education systems of the country,” the minister added.
The research council is determined to work to raising education standards in schools of Delhi, said SCERT Director Rajanish Kumar Singh.
