Bengaluru: The Department of Primary and Secondary Education will launch a mobile application (app) through which anybody may obtain information about government schools. The aim of this initiative is to make the school adoption programme more transparent.
Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai is expected to launch the app on February 14.
The app ‘Nanna Shaale Nanna Koduge’ will provide minute details about each of the State’s 48,000 government schools. One can choose a school to learn more about what facilities are needed for that school, as well as who has previously helped the school.
The department held an interaction programme with private sector organisations on Wednesday as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CRS) activities to address the overall development of government schools.
Speaking to mediapersons after the event Primary and Secondary Education Minister B. C. Nagesh said, “Over 75 different organisations participated and expressed their interest in developing government schools. Some even want to create government schools through a Public-Private Partnership. Several organisations expressed interest in bringing dropouts back into the mainstream, providing career counselling, and working to improve student and teacher mental health”
