Nadu Nedu: AP revamped 15,715 schools in 1st phase, digital classrooms from next year

Amaravati: Concluding the short discussion on Vidya Vaidyam Nadu Nedu in the state Assembly in Amaravati on Tuesday, Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy said the state government has been striving not just for the right to education but for the right to English-medium and right to higher education with incentives from pre-primary to college education. He also alleged that the previous dispensation had tried to push back government schools into oblivion to benefit corporate schools with a vested interest.

"We have chalked out our priorities well and wanted to see that the Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER) is drastically improved by providing incentives and also revamping the schools under Nadu Nedu. We have instructed that 12 visible changes be in place in government schools which include toilets, clean drinking water, repairs, tube lights and fans, furniture for students and teachers, green chalkboards, painting, English lab, compound wall, kitchen shed, additional rooms, and digital interactive panels," said CM Jagan.

He said that besides government schools, even pre-primary foundation schools and Anganwadi hostels are being developed under Nadu Nedu. In the first phase, 15,715 schools were revamped at a cost of Rs. 3.700 crore and the digitisation of classrooms will be in place from the next academic year, he added.

"The GER in primary schools for 2015-16 in the state was very poor and we could increase it drastically through schemes like Amma Vodi, Goru Muddha, Vidya Deevena, and Vasathi Devena," he said.

Jagna added that while government schools had 37.20 lakh students in 2018-19, it increased to 44.29 lakh in 2021-22.
