UNDER THE ongoing Global Action Week (GAW), corporator of Arera Colony Alok Sanjar was faced with reality check on the situation in Government schools when he visited the Government Navin Primary School at the 12 number bus stop under the `politician go back to school’ activity of the GAW.

The corporator talked to the headmistress, teachers and students of the schools and found that only poor people prefer to send their children to the Government school and even teachers agreed conditions at the schools were not conducive for good education.

The headmistress said the school was by a busy road that causes too much disturbance and also leads to accidents. The school also faces problem of drinking water, toilets and thus several students leave the school premises on pretext of going to toilet. The corporator assured the problem would be taken up by the Bhopal Municipal Corporation (BMC) for solution.

Other teachers of the schools also mentioned that at night the school becomes a haven for anti-socials. The windowpanes are broken, there is no place to dump garbage and the roof leaks during monsoon. They mentioned BMC had been requested to shift the school a number of times but in vain. The programme was coordinated by social organisation Bachpan of NIWCYD.
