Education Is Key
According to the SouthDelhi Mayor, the corporation will open at least one English-medium school in each ward and will also be opening 12 new schools in the coming months.
The reason for this hike in enrolment in SDMC schools is believed to be the quality of education that these schools ensure, despite the Delhi Government's low allocation of funds, he was quoted as saying in an IndiaToday report.
Nikita Sharma, SDMC's education committee chairperson, said that the SDMC delivers quality education to nearly 3 lakh students in its schools.
