This informal meet was held on January 7, Aditya Thackeray where the attendees discussed topics like high drop-out rates, poor quality of teaching and falling enrollments among others. Officials decided to scale up the partnership between private and civic schools which is currently done only with 80 schools in the city. Moreover, it was proposed that there should be an Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) curriculum in the existing BMC schools. 

Recently, Aditya Thackeray discussed the changes in the education system at the HUII conference that was held at Taj in Colaba. He said, 

After evaluating everything, we have come to the conclusion that there are two main reasons that children drop out of Municipal schools. The first one is that the kids migrate to their hometowns or villages and leave their education midway. Another reason is that these children prefer selling items roadside than attending schools as they feel that feeding their family and themselves is important.
