BANGALORE: Schools in the state are all set to witness the Prime Minister’s ‘Special Class’ on Friday.

Although it is not mandatory, the state Department of Public Instruction has issued a circular to all Deputy Directors as part of protocol. Headmasters of the schools are gearing up with television units, Edusat and radios.

Out of 49,114 schools in the state, the number of schools with the Edusat facility are just 1,800 in number. Apart from this, 6,335 aided and 17,315 unaided schools are all set to telecast the programme with LED screens.

Some schools with no Edusat have decided to screen it using the internet/Youtube. However, the department has asked the school authorities to send a report to the Block Education Officer. Officials confirmed that the Prime Minister will not interact with the state students.
