Talk to AK: Elaborating on his government’s initiatives to step up access to quality education, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal today said that he intentionally did not get his son’s school changed to one in the national capital. “My son studies in a Noida school. I could have easily got him shifted to a school in Delhi. I did not do this because I don’t want to take any obligation from any school,” he said during his “Talk to AK” interaction.

“If my son studied in a Delhi school, and I would have implemented a reform to check the rise in school fee, I would have been told by that school that we gave admission to your son. I would have been in a weak position,” Kejriwal said. “Now, I can keep a check on the school fee that all schools are charging, and this will make education affordable,” Kejriwal said.
