Residential schools to become Jr colleges
- Srihari wants govt. schools on par with private ones
Hyderabad: Stating that residential schools will be upgraded as junior colleges and grading system will be introduced next academic year, Deputy Chief Minister K Srihari said on Friday that vacant teacher posts in residential schools will be filled next academic Year.
Addressing a meeting of residential and model schools principals here, he said that the government will not implement grading system this year and there is no need of panic among the teachers, children and parents. Both grading and rankings will be given to schools next academic year, he said.
Srihari expressed unhappiness saying that though the government-run schools have qualified teachers, they lagged behind corporate schools such as Narayana, Chaitanya and others. He instructed the qualified teachers to introspect as to why government schools could not perform like that of Narayana and Chaitanya schools. The government has not yet taken a decision on conducting Eamcet next academic year. Any decision in this regard will be taken to see that the students do not suffer any sort of loss, he remarked.
Residential and Model schools should be developed in such a way that getting seats will become difficult as that of some of the private institutions. Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is aiming at transforming the schooling system and the government will develop the schools as model ones to be emulated by others at national level. KCR wants that our students excel and surpass others in any sort of examinations at world level and it was decided to felicitate the teachers for their performance. He said that the teachers can improve teaching through technology and subject teachers will get training. We should develop our schools to excel others at national level and surpass Navodaya and Kendriya Vidyalayas, Srihari said. -NSS
