School Education Reforms in Delhi 2015-2020 (dragged)

Executive Summary

The evidence suggests that there is definitely an impact on learning outcomes: Board results (Central Board of Secondary Education [CBSE]) have shown a steady increase (reaching 98 percent pass percentage in Class 12 in 2020) and have improved at a faster rate in both Classes 10 and 12 than private schools and the national average in the last five years. There is improvement in Foundational Literacy and Numeracy (FLN) outcomes in Classes 6 to 8 as well, although much remains to be done. New curricular elements such as Happiness Curriculum (HC) and Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum (EMC) have been received positively. Student attendance is improving and students also attested to increased teacher attendance and engagement during Focus Group Discussions (FGDs).
