Chittoor: Highlighting the problems being faced by students of corporate schools in the present times, Zilla Parishad chairperson Girvani Chandra Prakash urged the people at large to strengthen the government schools in the State.

Speaking at the Badi Pilostondhi (schools beckon) organised by the district Education department here on Wednesday, he lamented that corporate and private schools lack minimum facilities such as playground, recreation centres to help children unwind from heavy academics.

In order to strengthen the government schools, she urged the teachers working in them, politicians, and government employees to induct their children in them.

She pointed out Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu was working to transform the State into education hub, and sought people’s support to achieve the same. She further added that the State government was offering scholarship to 500 meritorious students to enable them to pursue higher studies abroad.

Chittoor MLA D A Satya Prabha urged the parents to ensure that children study in stress-free environment, instead of exerting pressure on them.

MLC Y Srinivasulu Reddy refuted that the government was trying to shutdown hostels and schools in the name of rationalisation. He urged the government to fill the vacant MEO posts.

Though English Medium was introduced as medium of instruction in many schools in the State, he regretted that no additional teacher was appointed. He differed with the reports indicating that a standard of primary education was deteriorating in the State.

Chittoor MP N Siva Prasad lamented that about 95 per cent Dalits are studying in government schools, and said hence there was need to improve the standard of such schools.

District Collector Siddharth Jain urged the teachers to make strenuous efforts to ensure that every child dropped from school is re-inducted. Chittoor Mayor incharge Subramanayam, TDP leader Rajeswari, DEO K Nageswara Rao, project officer of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan Lakshmi and others were present.
