Mumbai: In a bid to impart quality education in the civic-body run schools, BMC has decided to appoint private players from the field of education to manage the school functioning.

"We will be appointing private players having expertise in the field of education. To improve and maintain the standard of education, teachers from these schools will also be given special training by private experts," Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) standing committee chairman Rahul Shewale said on Thursday.

He said the civic-body will retain its old teaching staff. "Only the management would be handed over to the private players who would take charge of the laboratories, library and computer labs to impart better training to the students," Shewale said.

He clarified they would only be appointing private organisations for improving the functioning of schools and would not completely hand over the educational institutions to them.

"BMC will be having control over the schools, as it has now," Shewale said.
