In an attempt to overhaul the education system of Bihar, the state government will be sending a team to Delhi to study the ruling AAP government's model.

Bihar Education Minister Chandrashekhar on Wednesday said, "I personally feel that the existing school education system in the state must be changed. It needs a complete overhaul. Since I am a professor, I can easily find out those areas where drastic changes are required".

The minister said he is aware of Arvind Kejriwal's government school model therefore he has decided to send his officials to the national capital to study the same.

"People are praising the Arvind Kejriwal government's education model in the national capital. We will send our officials to study the successful school education system in certain states, including Delhi," said Chandrashekhar.

Chandrashekhar said a large number of vacancies in government schools and a lack of proper performance evaluation systems are the main reasons for which the state's students are suffering.

"I have started interacting with government teachers and officials of the department. A large number of teacher vacancies in government schools and a lack of performance evaluation systems are the main reasons for which the state's students are suffering. These issues will be examined at length and people will witness drastic changes," he said.

All vacant posts in schools and colleges will be filled, he added.
