Education Committee meeting was held on 24-09-2011 to discuss about the basic infrastructures, playgrounds, cleanliness, improvement of education in all BBMP Schools and Colleges. The Inspection Committee observed that basic infrastructure like drinking water, washrooms, etc were lacking in most schools. Some schools, like in Magadi Road, there were shortage of classrooms. Some schools conduct primary classes in the morning and college classes are conducted in the afternoons. Hence a request was made to construct more classrooms. The committee also requested the BBMP top officials to make frequent inspections to the schools and colleges to see their functioning and availability of infrastructure.
