Amaravati: The Andhra Pradesh government on 16 June signed an MoU with BYJU'S, an ed-tech company, to provide quality content to students of classes IV to X in government school. Further, the government announced it will provide tablets for class VIII students at a cost of Rs. 500 crores.

Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy said the move will transform the lives of many poor children. "The project is about supporting government school children so that they pass class X and XII CBSE exams with flying colors. It is our dream, and the partnership will strengthen it greatly," he said.

Jagan added, "The content available to private school children and quality content cost around Rs. 20,000-25,000 per annum. Now, it will be available to government school students for free. Further, the government will give tablets to enhance the digital experience and digital knowledge of the children."

Meanwhile, the teachers will also be given proper orientation so that they can do their part.

Byju Raveendran, the CEO of BYJU'S, said, "The Andhra Pradesh government is moving faster than a start-up. It is commendable and unbelievable for a government to move at this phase. I am excited about the opportunity given to us. Government school students will now get the same access to quality education as their counterparts in private schools."
