Stating that residential schools will be upgraded as junior colleges and grading system will be introduced next academic year, Deputy Chief Minister K Srihari today said that vacant teacher posts in residential schools will be filed up 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 they have qualified teachers, the government run schoolslagged behind compared to 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 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.
He said that the government is for providing the best facilities and infrastructure in all the government run schools across the state and will felicitate the best teachers and principals. (NSS)
