"We will implement the Delhi model of schools in Telangana as well. We will soon send a team of officers from our state to coordinate," he informed the media.
Briefing KCR, Kejriwal said, "We have around 1,100 schools and nearly 18 lakh students studying in them. Earlier, this number was 16 lakh, but now, due to remarkable improvements in the education sector, many students of private schools are joining our government schools."
