Bengaluru: Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) plans to provide special training for lecturers whose colleges showed poor performance in PU examinations in 2020-21. During the last educational year, 82 PU students secured distinction while 973 students secured first class in PU by the colleges run by BBMP. But many colleges showed poor performance.
Speaking to reporters BBMP education wing special commissioner Reddy Shankar Babu told that, “Cleveland PU college run by BBMP is showing good performance every year. But few colleges are showing poor performance. In these colleges, no one passed in distinction and the number of students who passed in first class is also less. If the same result recurs every year principal and lecturers are to be held responsible. Hence, we decided to provide special training for lecturers of these colleges,” he added.
He said there is no chance for reforms if we think the quality of education is good this year following per cent result. “We will find the reason for the poor performance by the colleges as it is the question of future of students. Students are not responsible for the poor performance as every year the students are changing,” he stressed.
Babu further said, ” There is no scarcity of lecturers in any college, if any principal asks for lecturers, we will appoint guest lecturers within 48 hours after the request. We plan to compete with private colleges as all our institutions have good basic infrastructure.”
The Cleveland PU college tops in results this year. Of the 459 students who appeared for examinations, 20 got distinction, 260 secured first class. But in Tasker town and Austin town colleges none secured distinction. BBMP runs 138 schools and 19 colleges providing education to more than 18,000 students from the first standard to a bachelor’s degree.
