Uttarakhand adopts PPP mode to run primary schools in the Dehra Dun




After residential schools, the Uttarakhand government is planning to run its primary schools under the private public partnership (PPP) mode.

In the first phase, eight primary schools in Dehradun district would be operated under a pilot project scheme, official sources said.

According to the state PPP cell, the enrolment level in government primary schools is continuously dropping due to lack of basic infrastructure, shortage of teaching staff, sub-standard quality of education and medium of education not being English has forced the government to adopt PPP route for running these primary schools.

The eight primary schools are Hakikatrai Nagar primary school, Bapunagar primary school, Chakhuwala No 2 primary school, Araghar No 1 primary school, Sayeedpur primary school, Amrit Kaur Road primary school, Jhadipani primary school and Dhudli primary school, said Sumit Barua who is heading the PPP cell.
