Shocking all, Andhra Pradesh government has announced closure of all Telugu medium Schools in all the municipalities of the state. The decision taken by Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, who claims to be ‘Torch Bearer’ of Telugu language triggered huge protests across the state.
The state government has issued orders instructing the education department to convert all Telugu medium Schools into English medium from next academic year.
The teachers’ associations and student organizations alleged that Municipal Administration and Urban Development minister P Narayana conspired to weaken school education in government sector by closing all Telugu medium Schools and promote his Narayana schools in the urban areas in Andhra Pradesh.
Narayana schools are established in every municipality and are fleecing gullible parents by luring them with high quality education.
Teachers’ associations threatened to go on indefinite strike if the government did not withdraw its decision.
