To upgrade the quality of primary-secondary education dispensed in its schools, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai) has resolved to appoint private educators, consultants and teachers.
“We will appoint private educators with proven expertise to improve teaching-learning standards in BMC schools. Teachers in our schools will be given special training by private experts,” chairman of the education standing committee Rahul Shewale informed newsmen in Mumbai on July 26. He said the civic body will retain its teaching staff. “Only management will be handed over to private players to take charge of laboratories, libraries and computer labs to impart better training to students,” he added.
Shewale clarified that the corporation intends to appoint private organisations to improve standards of BMC schools and not transfer schools to them completely. “BMC will retain control over municipal schools,” he reiterated.Posted in States
