Government schools beat Public Schools in CBSE
Huffington Post Article, 01/06/2017
Delhi had a compelling reason to smile last week, after the results of the CBSE Class 12 examinations were announced. The hard work put in by children and their teachers at Delhi's government schools have paid off. Delhi government schools have outperformed India's private schools by almost 9%. The pass percentage of Delhi government schools is 88.36%, while that of private schools across the country is 79.27%
Delhi's government schools have also surpassed the national CBSE result by 6%, and that of Delhi's private schools by a little over 4%. For examinations like the CBSE's Class 12 Board exams, the extent of standardisation is not sophisticated enough to compare results year-on-year, so performance can only be observed relative to other segments. Although the pass percentages of government schools in Delhi have remained consistent for the last three years, in comparison with that of private schools in Delhi and across the country, it does reflect a significantly better showing.
