New Delhi: A dispute has erupted between the Delhi government and the Center over a claim. Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal claimed on Wednesday that for the first time a virtual school is being started in the country.
At the same time, the Center says that it started last year i.e. in August 2021. The National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) has also confirmed this. This clarification of NIOS has come after CM Arvind Kejriwal started the Delhi Virtual Model School.
Kejriwal has claimed that this is the first such platform in India. He said that students from all over the country would be eligible for admission in this school. Along with this, he said that it is related to the Delhi School Education Board (DBSE). This will decide his course.
DBSE will also provide the mark sheet and certificate here. Based on this, the students will be valid for taking admission in graduation. Kejriwal said that during this time no fee will be charged to the students. The number of the first batch has not been decided yet.
The number of batches will be based on the registration of the students. Classes will be conducted on a special platform developed by Schoolnet and Google. There will be an online system for classes. Students can opt for subject or concept based assessment during the course.
CM Arvind Kejriwal told on Wednesday that during the Corona period, there used to be virtual classes, taking inspiration from that a virtual school has been started. Although children must go to physical school, but education should reach those who cannot go to school, so this childhood school has been made. In this, all the classes will be online, whether you can attend live or watch the recording. The name of this school is Delhi Model Virtual School.
