The success rate in 2022 was 71.27% compared to 50.16% (2020), 52% (2019) and 51% (2018). In fact, KG Nagar School scored zero percent for the second time after 2020.

According to Umesh DS, Assistant Commissioner for Education at the BBMP, funds for improving BBMP schools are insufficient. “We received around Rs 100 crore this year and only Rs 70 crore was used. Of these, Rs 22 crore was earmarked for teachers’ salaries and the rest for infrastructure. Many of these teachers are outsourced through an agency and none of the teachers have made efforts to improve the standard of education, Despite working for many years,” Umesh said.

Murphy Town BBMP School, located in UIsoor, is predominantly an area with a Tamil speaking population. According to Abdul Rahim, the principal of the school, students find it difficult to understand Kannada subjects and tend to perform poorly.

“Since all the students enrolled in this BBMP school are children of Tamil speaking parents who are migrant workers, they hardly make an effort to understand Kannada. In fact, out of the 19 students, 10 are boys who work in middle jobs. They also work as drummers during funerals and become This is an excuse for them to attend school for 15 days. Meanwhile, the girls also do housework, leaving them little time in the morning to study. Confident of the improvement in the quality of education for students in the current school year, said Rahim, “These factors have been reflected very badly for their academic performance.

However, the BBMP issued a notice of offer to principals and also terminated teacher services. We have issued an offer notice asking for an explanation of poor academic performance. We have also flagged BBMP schools with a pass rate of less than 50% and asked them to improve. “We are making efforts to introduce smart classrooms, improve civic infrastructure and strengthen the housekeeping system from this school year,” Umesh said.

Byraveshwarnagar BBMP School scored the highest pass rate of 91.52% with 27 distinctions, followed by Herohalli School which had a 90% pass rate with 21 students who were awarded. Students who fail will attend supplementary exams that will begin on June 27.
