CBSE Results: AAP knows government schools outshining private ones in Delhi is still not enough
- Total Shares
The pass percentage at government schools stood at 88.27 per cent, as against the 79.27 per cent at private schools.
The CBSE class 12 results have come as a victory for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led Delhi government after its increased funding for government schools in the capital saw them perform better than more expensive private schools for the second year running. As per the results, a higher percentage of students studying in government schools passed the Central Board of Secondary Education’s (CBSE) 12th exams than those in private schools.
The development is a welcome news for the AAP as it is the second year in a row that government schools have performed better than private schools.
Last year, the gap between government and private schools' pass percentage was 2 per cent. However, that gap has gone up to 9 per cent, with government schools at 88.27 per cent and private schools at 79.27 per cent.
