Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik had promised to focus on improving the standards of municipal education system during municipal polls. And NMMC, under his guidance seem to be heading in this direction so well that for the first time municipal schools in the city are seeing admission rush like never before. This is Thane Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik speaking on how making education accessible free of cost and donation less will be their prime agenda for the next five years as the ruling front in NMMC. And perhaps it is this factor that seems to be already working so well that municipal schools in Navi Mumbai are seeing an admission rush like never before. While MCGM and TMC schools are battling with the school drop out rates, under Guardian Minister Ganesh Naik’s leadership, NMMC is re-writing new standards in municipal education with all new schools buildings that provide students computers labs and audio visual rooms. Balasaheb Mane informed that besides four secondary schools, three new schools are coming up at Koperkhairane, Turbhe and Ghansoli – these three schools are coming up seeing the increasing number of students enrolling in these municipal schools. In addition to this, three junior colleges are going to come up at Rabale, Shirawne and Vashi. The next aim is to get a degree college. The way NMMC schools are headed, it wouldn’t be long before they will start giving several private schools a run for their money. Gangasingh Rajpurohit for NMTV News.
