The Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) has sued the MCD for poor quality education in its schools.

The commission has ordered an investigation into the repeated failures of MCD-run schools. The MCD has been given two weeks to respond to DCPCR’s notification. It was requested to submit its reply before 19 September.

WHAT DOES THE NOTICE INCLUDE?

DCPCR’s Notice of Inquiry states: “The responsibility for providing primary education rests with the Delhi Municipal Corporation. Therefore, the findings of the 2021 National Achievement Survey (NAS) for grade 3 are a direct commentary on the quality of teaching and learning in municipal schools.”

“The NAS class 3 results paint a bleak picture of teaching and learning in municipal schools, which rank Delhi among the 5 worst performing states in India. In fact, Municipal Corporation of Delhi class 3 results are below the national average in all three subjects: Language, Mathematics and Environmental Studies,” it reads.

“The state average score for Class 3 in language is only 52 percent, while the national average is 62%,” it added.

It further states: “It should be noted that the poor performance cannot be pandemic as the Class 3 score in the 2017 National Achievement Survey was only 58%. Therefore, the Commission is sending a notice to the Delhi Municipal Corporation to request an explanation for the poor performance. The explanation must be submitted within 2 weeks, no later than 19.09.2022.”
