All Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC)-run schools could soon have classes upto Std X. At the general body meeting of the civic body on Monday (19 Dec), Mayor Mohansingh Rajpal urged schools boards to provide higher education at their schools.
We will expand the number of standards in PMC schools. Students will be able to study here till the 10th standard, the mayor said. We will also give the go-ahead to start junior colleges in the schools. A proposal to start a junior college at PMC-run schools had come up for discussion at the meeting. Some corporators opposed the idea, saying that these schools had been set up on land reserved for primary schools, but the administration insisted that opening junior colleges was a possibility. If a primary school is currently operating there and space is available, then we can start high schools or junior colleges, said Mahesh Pathak, PMC commissioner. Some corporators said that giving priority to higher education was more important than starting junior colleges at PMC run schools. We run English medium schools up to the seventh standard. After the seventh standard, students find it difficult to get admission in other good schools, said corporator Avinash Bagwe. Mayor Mohansingh Rajpal said that the PMC would try to do both. At the meeting, there was also a discussion on opening branches of leading PMC schools. If these leading schools are given a chance to start their branches on vacant PMC school premises, then the overall standard of PMC school education will go up, said Subhash Jagtap, leader of the house in the PMC. He said that this would also help provide better education facilities to all strata of society. Many times students representing deprived class find it difficult to get admission in leading schools.
