Proposal for privatisation of 35 closed municipal schools rejected again

Education committee has yet again rejected the proposal to start 35 closed municipal schools via private organisations and teachers


The Education Committee on Wednesday rejected the proposal to start 35 municipal schools, which were shut down, through private organisations. The administration has suggested that the policy shall be amended and shall be presented again.

35 Municipal schools were shut down due to the decrease in the number of students. Earlier on November 21, 2017, Education committee rejected the proposal to start these schools through private organisations and another demand was presented to provide 25 per cent reservation quota for the public representatives.

However, the Education committee agreed to give only 10 per cent quota for admissions to the public representatives including MPs, MLAs, and MLCs.

Chairperson of the Education Committee, Shubhada Guddekar suggested that the corporators should be included in the proposal. She ordered that the proposal shall be reproduced on the demands of the members.
