The BMC will sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the British Council to improve the quality of education in semi-English-medium municipal schools. The MoU, which will be signed on Friday, is for five years and the objective is to train around 9,600 municipal schoolteachers in the English language. The initiative will cost BMC Rs 3.28 crore.

“We had begun with the training of 250 teachers on a pilot basis. Because of the poor quality of education, students who come from low-income households are forced to attend private schools for better future prospects. The initiative is aimed at providing better education,” said BMC education committee chairman Manoj Kotak.
