With Teacher’s Day around the corner, the Bengaluru civic body is planning to launch tuition centres for underprivileged students.
Story so far: Tuition centres will be set up at ten locations across the city, employing teachers to help students complete their homework and enhance their skills. Each tuition centre will be able to accommodate 20 to 25 students at a time, training them to complete their examinations successfully.
- Initially, the plan is to enrol students from grade 3 to grade 5, with classes being held from 5.30 pm to 7 pm on all working days.
- The BBMP will employ a team of 3,500 teachers in these tuitions in addition to encouraging interested professionals to apply.
Collaborative effort: The civic body will carry out this initiative with the help of various non-governmental organizations (NGOs). They will join hands with these organizations while setting up centres in Cleveland Town PU College and High School, Ganganagar High School, Kasturba Nagar High School and PU College, among others.
