Earlier, district education officials have decided to close 105 government primary schools, 16 upper primary schools and 4 Zilla Parishad high schools in the district due to lack of strength. District Collector P S Pradyumna and Amaranatha Reddy have urged HRD Minster Ganta Srinivasa Rao to exempt schools from rationalisation. But, he expressed his ability as it is against the state government policy.
During his recent visit to Kuppam, the Chief Minister also did not concede the request of the Collector and the Industries Minister. On Thursday, Amaranatha Reddy spoke to the Chief Minister over phone explaining the need of exempting the district from rationalisation. As a result, only 6 government primary schools will be closed as they have student strength of less than 5.
