Parents of Class 10 and 12 students in Delhi government schools can now spend their evenings at ‘parents workshops’ being launched by the AAP dispensation.

The first set of workshops will begin from November 15 onwards in 50 Delhi government-run schools across the city.

Initially, the workshops will only be conducted for parents of children appearing for Class 10 and 12 Board examinations and a full-fledged roll-out of this programme is set to take place from January 2018, a Delhi government statement said.

The workshops will not be mandatory and the parents can attend them voluntarily.

“The involvement of parents in the education of children makes a significant difference to their performance. The workshops are aimed at working with parents to help create the right kind of environment for children even at their homes,” Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.

“Parents will also be sensitised on how to play a supportive role with children to reduce their stress,” he added.
