Karimnagar: The governing body of the Jagtial Zilla Parishad has decided to introduce English medium in government-run primary and high schools from the next academic year.
A meeting of the panel presided over by chairperson Dava Vasantha passed a resolution to this effect and passed on its copies to the principals and chairmen of the Vidya committees on Monday.
Vasantha said the education imparted in these schools will be of high standards matching with the levels of the corporate schools. Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao has taken steps for strengthening the government schools by providing all kinds of basic facilities along with good infrastructure, she noted.
“Keeping in view the spread of the second wave of coronavirus, the government ordered closure of schools in the state. Once the situation returned to normalcy, they will be reopened,” she said.
Vasantha thanked KCR for announcing Rs 2,000 and 25 kg of rice every month for each private school teacher until the schools reopened in view of the Covid-linked economic crisis and non-payment of salaries for them. As many as 1.5 lakh private school staff would benefit by this decision, she said.
She noted that the students of Jagtial were coming in top positions in the SSC examinations for the past three years. Teachers and principals should put in the same kind of efforts by providing students with quality education.
ZP chief executive officer Srinath Rao, deputy CEO Sandhya Rani and Jagtial PACS chairman Mahipal Reddy were among those present....
