                                                                                 Table of responses received for BMC’s Education Advisory Boards - July 29th 2006

In a multi-crore Educational Quality Improvement Project drawn up by Additional Municipal Commissioner (Projects) Manu Kumar Srivastava, the BMC has proposed to open 85 English-medium schools and has also suggested an extensive makeover for existing ones. An independent and qualified advisory board comprising social activists and educationists would also be set up in each ward, to supervise the quality of education in the schools, in order to bring the civic schools on par with the private schools.  

The NGO Council circulated details of this Education Improvement Project and Advisory Board, and invited interested NGOs, educationists, experts, etc. to write to Mr.Srivastava with their details. Following is a table of the responses received as on July 29th 2006.  

If you wish to be on any of these 24 Advisory Boards, details are available at the end of the table.  

Note: Where the organisation / individuals have not stated the preferred Wards / localities that they would like to work in, it is assumed that they will work in any Ward / locality that may be assigned to them
