Panel nod for plan to let corporates, NGOs adopt municipal schools

Aug 23, 2012

The standing committee of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has approved the proposal to allow corporates, educational trusts and NGOs to adopt civic schools. The proposal is aimed at ensuring effective implementation of Right to Education (RTE) Act in public schools.

Under the recently proposed public-private partnership (PPP) model, BMC hopes to improve the quality of education at civic schools and bring it on a par with private school standards. The proposal will now discussed in the general body meeting for final approval, said BMC officials.

Three of the four types of PPP models are long term in nature.

Under this, the staff will be employed by the private operator.
