Bangalore, July 7 (UNI) The Karnataka Government will have a blueprint by December this year to improve the quality of primary and secondary education, Primary Education Minister Basavaraj S Horatti informed today.

Lauding the initiative, he said the CDs in Kannada and English, worth over Rs two crore, would be used in 1,000 Mahithi Sindhu Schools.
Speaking on the occasion, Foundation Director Kumar Malavalli said the use of multimedia content would help to raise the standard of education in schools and increase the overall performance and pass percentage of students.
