In his media address, Delhi’s Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said they were starting India’s first virtual school. But is the claim true?

Kejriwal’s Media Address:

  1. Delhi CM Kejriwal announced on 31st Aug 2022 that his government was starting India’s first virtual school- Delhi Model Virtual School
  2. The virtual school will be affiliated with the Delhi Board of Education
  3. Students from anywhere in the country can apply for admission said Kejriwal
  4. Admissions for the virtual school will begin from class 9

India’s first virtual school

  1. With just a simple search it can be proved that this claim is completely false
  2. India has about three to four private virtual schools namely, SEAS global institute, K8 School, The Virtual School of India, and 21K school
  3. Ex CM of Uttarakhand Trivendra Singh Rawat inaugurated virtual school projects way back in 2019
  4. He also inaugurated three schools in Dehradun which connected about 600 remote locations virtually

Reality of the Kejriwal School Model

  • On 27th August 2022, a student was injured after a ceiling fan fell on her
  • The girl, studying in a government school in Delhi had to be hospitalized due to the incident
  • Reportedly, the walls of the classroom were damp and were dripping water
  • Several videos surfing online claim that there aren’t enough teachers, unclean water, inadequate classrooms as well as the school building is a fall risk

While NYT is busy boasting about Arvind Kejriwal’s education model, the real victims here seem to be the voters and innocent children of Delhi.
