Increased autonomy for Principals

After assuming charge as Delhi's Education Minister, I initiated a dialogue with Government school principals. I interacted with them both, one-to-one and in groups. After I spoke to some Principals about problems with their schools during visits, it came to my knowledge that Principals are highly disemboweled. Even to undertake small tasks in their school, they were mandated to send files to senior officials, which more often than not, got stuck in red tape. Principals are responsible for the education of thousands of children, but out system doesn't trust them to handle even Rs 5-10 thousand without prior clearance.

In a break from tradition, I granted significantly more autonomy to principals. A Principal is the leader of a school. How will a leader function without any authority? I issued special guidelines to the effect that Principals did not need to send files for every ordinary work to be done in the school to the Deputy Director. Principals now enjoy far more autonomy than they used to.
