Mumbai being one of the most popular cities in the world is a leading place in terms of each and everything. Education is also one of them. The education system of Mumbai is one of the best in the country.
The basic system starts with schooling. The kinds of schools in Mumbai can be broadly classified into two types, the municipal schools and the private schools. The municipal schools are the ones that get aid from the government and are looked after by them. They are generally easily affordable for people belonging to all economical classes. The private schools are owned by private and Business people.
The government also has made provisions to provide free education to girl child from the 5th grade to the 12th grade. There are also provisions made for people belonging to certain scheduled and backward castes as well as economically backward class to get free education or education at a minimal cost.
The city has many exceptional educational institutions to boast of. Indian Institute of Technology (Bombay), Veermata Jijabai Technolocial Institute (VJTI), University Institute of Chemical Technology (UICT) and SNDT Women’s University are a few of them.
Like with every good things come certain bad things, the system of education in Mumbai had been commercialized to a great extent. There are a lot of coaching classes that students are enrolled into thus increasing their burden. Thus it has become essential to look into the matter and minimize it to the best possible extent.
