Formal Schooling Begins in Tihar Today
(Patriot, 15 June 1994)

    In mornings, the capital’s central Tihar Jail turns into a school. This atmosphere would get a tinge of formality on Wednesday when a branch of National Open School would be opened in this overcrowded jail, housing more than 8000 inmates.
According to Inspector General of Prisons Kiran Bedi, the branch would be a boon as more than 200 inmates have already filled up admission forms for tenth class examination.
    The entire jail population is split into more than 300 classrooms with educated prison inmates as teachers. 
    Moral education, social studies, basic functional literacy, and languages like Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Sanskrit, French, Persian and Swahili are taught in these classes.
    Education programmes in Tihar jail are being supported by more than 80 local schools, institutions and individuals.
    Delhi’s Education Minister Sahib Singh Verma will be the Chief Guest at the function on Wednesday while National Open School chairman Mr Mukhopadyaya would be the guest of honour.
