BANGALORE: The Department of Public Instructions is mulling to take over the primary and high schools run by urban local bodies (ULB) in the state.

The idea was being mooted by Primary and Secondary Education Minister Vishweshwar Hegde Kageri who feels that bringing schools run by ULBs under the purview of his department would streamline their administration and improve the quality of education.

There are several schools in the state which are being run and governed by urban local bodies of which most of them are in Bangalore.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Kageri said the proposal was still in its initial stage and a final decision would be taken after consulting district in-charge ministers, MLAs and members of the respective urban local bodies. “I have already started the process of consultation and I hope that everyone would accept the proposal,” Kageri added.

The department is also holding a one-day conference of members of the standing committee for education of all ZPs on January 20.
