Pimpri: In an effort to educational enhancement in the civic schools, Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation’s (PCMC) Education Department Core Team embarked on a three-day exploration in Delhi recently. The team engaged with Delhi’s educational landscape, exploring the mentor-teacher model, visiting vocational education institutions, and governance improvement (Infrastructure, administration, capacity building of teachers and principals).
The visit included fruitful discussions with officials from the important education authorities from the Delhi Board of School Education, and State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) among others.
PCMC Commissioner Shri Shekhar Singh on the visit said, “Visit to Delhi reflects PCMC’s commitment to offering top-notch education.

This collaborative effort will undoubtedly contribute to the holistic development of our students.”
Core team member, Tauseef Parvez on the visit to Delhi said, “Our focus was not just on increasing educational standards but on understanding the intricacies of students’ learning experiences. We studied the symbiotic roles of teachers, principals, and parents in shaping the educational landscape, emphasizing a holistic approach in Delhi public schools.”
Another core team member, Charushila Phuge, Assistant teacher at Secondary School Landewadi said, “The Delhi Education Department has made some experiments to accommodate students of all levels in the education stream, as well as to develop the professional and potential skills of the students. On this study tour, we were able to see those experiments closely.”
Manisha Sadavarte from Jadhavwadi Boys School on her experience said, “The picture of government schools in Delhi was very different four to five years ago, but every teacher there themselves took the responsibility and to bring a drastic change in the children and the school, along with the teachers, the parents and the authorities also play an important role.”
