Garbage lessons to begin at school

In an attempt to address the glaring lack of awareness on waste segregation among the public, the State Government has decided to impart lessons right from school level. The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and the Department of State Education, Research and Training (DSERT) will introduce ‘Solid Waste Management’ as a ‘co-curricular’ subject for Class IX and Class X students in all schools across the State from next academic year. The co-curricular activity will be mandatorily implemented in government, BBMP as well as private management schools which are registered under the State Government syllabi.
