Teachers are sculptors who mould students future: Jagan

Vijayawada: Highlighting the government's education reforms to provide quality education to students, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy said teachers have a prominent role to play in shaping the future of students in this competitive world.

He was speaking at the Teachers' Day function held on 5 September where he presented awards to the best teachers across the state. Addressing the teachers, Jagan said his government has been giving priority to the education sector and introduced various reforms to fully prepare the students to face the competitive world. The teachers are the sculptors who mould the students' future, he added.

"During the past three years, in the education sector alone, we had spent over Rs. 53,000 crores under various schemes that are aimed at placing our state ahead in terms of quality of education, increasing literacy rate, checking dropout rates, and achieving 70 GER in higher education," said Jagan.

Several schemes, including Nadu Nedu, Jagananna Goru Muddha, English medium, Vidya Kanuka, CBSE, subject teachers, Byjus pack, tablets for class VIII students, digital classrooms, upgrading teachers' skills, Vidya Deevena, and Vasati Deevena, were implemented in the state.

Sharing his views on the future projects, the CM said they aim at bringing back the previous glory of government schools and shaping them better than corporate schools which will attract more students. "The Opposition that never bothered to solve such issues is now speaking against us and provoking the teachers. The yellow media has also been very biased. This has weakened all public sector units in the education, medical, and transport sectors and brought in a situation where even government employees need to go. But we have reversed the trend and are working forward with the reforms," Jagan said.
