The government schools of Delhi, including some Urdu-medium schools, have given a stellar performance in the CBSE class-12th results. Some 70 schools achieved 100 per cent results whereas last year 63 schools were able to achieve this, claimed a government official. Compared to this Urdu-medium schools mostly located in the old city with little facilities were able to give a satisfactory result, managing to post pass percentage of nearly 80. The results are praiseworthy in the sense that most of these Municipal Corporation of Delhi run schools lack facilities.
When it comes to Urdu schools the situation is not so rosy with non-availability of quality textbooks in Urdu and teachers. Despite all odds, two girl students of the Walled city: Farheen Naseem daughter of a tea stall employee and Atiya daughter of a laundryman scored 84 and 83 per cent respectively.
Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit congratulated the students, parents, teachers and Education Department on the results. Also, she congratulated girls whose performance has been better than boys like last year. Nearly 89.72 per cent girls got through against 81.58 per cent boys. The result of Rajkiya Pratibha Vikas Vidyalaya is 97.92 per cent which is more than that of Delhi KVs 95.66 per cent and Public Schools of Delhi 89.06 per cent, according to official record.
Dikshit said: “It is a matter of great pride and happiness for all of us that the children of the schools of Directorate of Education have once again shown excellent results in Class XII, this year. This is due to the hard-work put in by the children and parents, under the supervision and guidance of our school teachers. Our principals, teachers and officers have been working dedicatedly to bring about a qualitative and quantitative change in the system of assessment and teaching.” The passed out students have brought proud to us, she added.
