Bengaluru:  The long wait for the appointment of District in-Charge Ministers ended with Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy (HDK) releasing the list last evening.

The appointments were completed well ahead of the Independence Day as the in-Charge Ministers have to hoist the National Flag in their respective districts on Aug.15.

    Honourable Minsiter,
    Can you please answer why Schools & Colleges are facing such problems ? Take Mathrumandali School which has a glorious history of 100 years is nearing closing.Such a great Maharaja’s School associated with greats like RKNarayan,RKLaxman is about to be closed.The building is collapsing.Whatever GREAT MAHARAJAS OF MYSORE built is collapsing,like alwnsdowne bidg,Big Market etc.

    TAKE A DECISION TO CLOSE THE BIG MARKET & BUILD A NEW MARKET IN IT’S PLACE.The present building has outlived in its usefulness,& hence collapsing.

      The said schools are closing coz of poor attendance (in single digit).
      Its a catch 22 situation, Unless there is enough pupil; school can not run and Unless School runs, people wont come.

        Parents struggle a lot to give good education to their children.The Govt doesn’t spend on education.That is compensated by Parents.They pawn their belongings to see their children get good education.The poor like SC/ST send their children to convents at exorbitant fees.The rich ofcourse send their children to DOON SCHOOL.The net effect is schools are funnily named as KP CONVENT.

        What these parents do not realise is if the child is DUD,no convent can make him intelligent.The converse is if the child is naturally intelligent ,no Govt school can make him DUD.

        People prefer CONVENTS for lower education & prefer GOVT SCHOOLS/COLLEGES(IISc,IITs) for higher education.No private institutions are interested in higher education,because you can’t make money there.
