News - Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal assures readmission of 60000 Class X failed students

While criticising the no-detention policy and saying that it has ruined the education system, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has recently given the assurance that 60,000 students who failed in class X this year will be readmitted.

Here what the bill states:

The bill proposes an enabling provision which will allow states to detain students in Class V and Class VIII if they fail in the year-end exam

Further, the students will be given a second chance before they are detained

Here's what CM Arvind Kejriwal said:

  • Previous governments introduced no-detention policy till class 8. It ruined the education system. When students took their first exam in class 9 they failed en-masse. They appeared through open school in class 10 and 60,000 students failed - said Arvind Kejriwal
  • This announcement was made by the CM Kejriwal while addressing the gathering at Chattarsal Stadium on the occasion of Independence Day.
  • I assure all 60,000 students who failed in class 10 that they will be readmitted and special classes will be held for them - Kejriwal added.
  • Last week, a bill to scrap the policy in schools till Class 8 under the Right to Education Act was introduced in Lok Sabha.
