New Delhi: The AAP government in Delhi Monday said all students from nursery to class 8 will be promoted in both government and private schools in the national capital.

Deputy Chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia said this was being done under the no-detention policy of the Right to Education Act in the larger interest of children as schools remain shut due to the coronavirus lockdown.

The no-detention policy states that no student can be failed or expelled from school until the completion of elementary education covering classes 1 to 8.

As for students above class 8, the minister said a decision will be taken after consultations with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).

Schools and educational institutions across Delhi, and the country, have been closed due to the all-India lockdown that was announced by the Prime Minister last Tuesday.

Online classes for Class 12

Addressing a digital press conference along with CM Arvind Kejriwal, Sisodia said the Delhi government will begin online classes of two subjects for students set to begin Class 12 in the new academic year. Those registering for the classes will be provided monetary help to buy data packs, he added.

Messages via SMS/IVR will be sent to parents for daily activities as is already being done in some schools in Maharashtra. “If necessary, (we) will also start classes on television channels,” Sisodia said.

Apart from measures for schools, Kejriwal also announced that essentials will be provided to those without ration cards and arrangements are being made to facilitate this. “The process is being streamlined to ensure the distribution can take place in two to four days,” he said.
