In a move to up the ante of government schools in the city, the Delhi government's education department has launched a drive to analyse the performance of a student and a school in a particular subject and identify the areas that need further improvements.
Out of a total of 142 schools under the aegis of Delhi, there are 98 day schools and 44 evening. Officials said that a thorough analysis was being conducted to check the subjects in which the students had scored the least and identify the respective teachers of the subjects.
The officials said that it was being done to sensitise students and raise their performance bar so that they become capable of appearing for class 12 Board exams.
"Inspections will be conducted on regular basis to improve the results," said a official.
While the city government schools cater to 2.3 lakh students, it was found that only eight out of the 142 schools had students scoring 100% in class 12 Board exams.
"We have also identified schools where students had scored more than 90% in class 12 and where students of class 11 have scored below 70%," added the official.
The analysis also indicated that Political Science was the weakest spot for students since the syllabus for the same had recently been changed.
While the Delhi Government also identified 11 schools that were lagging, it was found that the fall in performance was also linked to tutelage.
Course correction, the officials suggested, could only be done by identifying teachers under whom students had performed significantly better.
"We have understood that students perform much better under guest faculty," said the official.
