Design syllabus to suit market needs: Kadiam tells VCs
Hyderabad: Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari has emphasized the need for designing the courses based on market and industry requirements to bridge the gap.
Opening a few building blocks at Telangana University built for boys and girls at Biknoor in Nizamabad district, on Saturday, Srihari said: “As a part of achieving Golden Telangana, we must try to make changes in the syllabus and courses in accordance with the market needs.”
He asked the vice chancellors and heads of institutions to prepare the students to learn and excel at all levels. Claiming that Telangana launched 240 Gurukul schools in a single year, Srihari said the TRS Government was revamping the education sector that was treading on wrong path due to lopsided policies of the previous government. The state government was making changes in the education system that will cater to the changing needs of markets and industries to provide ample scope for employment.
The State government has come up with a unique plan to open a large number of Gurukul schools and colleges as no other state dared to do it to provide the best education to the poor and deprived classes in the state. Srihari said Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has released funds for opening 254 Gurukul schools for providing quality education and will be launching 210 such institutions next year, he said. Stating that north block will be constructed in the varsity on the standards of south block, he exhorted the principals and subject teachers to strive for increasing education standards in 11 varsities in Telangana. -NSS
