22,000 teachers will get promoted due to implementation of NEP: Jagan

Amaravati: Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy on Thursday asked officials to introduce reforms in line with the New Education Policy (NEP) by next academic year and said 22,000 teachers in the state will get promotions due to schools being set up under the NEP.

Jagan held a review meeting on the progress of works in the education department at the camp office here on Thursday. He instructed the officials to ensure that the teacher-students ratio is maintained in schools and that there are subject-wise teachers. He said more than 22,000 teachers will get promotions due to schools being set up under the NEP and added that they should be promoted from SGT to school assistants. Appropriate steps should be taken to improve their capabilities, he said and instructed officials to complete promotions and transfers and implement the reforms by June.

The Chief Minister instructed officials to change two schools into junior colleges in each mandal and said one junior college will be co-education and another only for girls. He said all recommendations given by SERT should be implemented. He also gave his nod to change the name of Mandal Resource Center to Mandal Education Officer's Office and gave drawing powers directly to the MEO. He approved the SERT recommendation of handing over educational activities to MEO and gave his nod for the recruitment of MEP posts.

Jagan approved the implementation of several SERT recommendations like taking online attendance, entering the students' marks online, not using teachers for non-academic works, and instructing headmasters to organize one meeting a month.

The Chief Minister instructed the officials to take immediate action on the redressal of complaints from schools and also to focus on lack of facilities and repair infrastructure. He directed the officials to start the second phase of the Nadu Nedu works. The officials, meanwhile, informed the Chief Minister that the second phase will start from 15 February and will be complete by September.

The state government has set up a toll-free number (14417) to report any problems related to Jagananna Vidya Kanuka, toilet maintenance, Gorumudda, and maintenance of schools.

The Chief Minister instructed the officials to provide dictionaries to new students in schools and every day teach them one word and its usage. Make it part of the curriculum, he said and also asked the officials to focus on digital learning for classes 8, 9, and 10.

The officials, meanwhile, refuted the claim that schools are being shut down due to the NEP and said no school will be closed.
