After the remarkable performance of the capital’s government schools in this year’s board exams, the MLA said it was time to lead by example. Mr Khan’s son Anas was admitted today in Class 9 and his daughter Tahora in Class 6 of Government Girls Senior Secondary School Joga Bai.

The pass percentage of Delhi schools has reached a new high this year, touching 90.64 per cent, while private schools remained behind with 88.35 per cent. After the board exam results were declared in May, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said 168 government schools have achieved 100 per cent results, against 112 schools last year.

Mr Sisodia also said as many as 638 government schools have achieved pass percentage of 90 and above, against the 554 last year.

“Government schools have come a long way under the current government, we have faith in them. I want to set an example for others. More parents should trust government schools,” said khan.

He added that his move has also inspired his family and friends, who are “eager to shift their children as well”.
