KCR mulls English medium in govt schools, colleges

Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao

Close on the heels of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana has decided to introduce English medium in government schools.

The Cabinet meeting, chaired by Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao at Pragathi Bhavan on January 17, approved a scheme ‘Mana Ooru Mana Badi’ (Our Village Our School) at a cost of Rs 7,289 crore for providing quality education and basic amenities in schools.

During the discussions on bringing in excellence in education, the Cabinet came to a conclusion that the English medium would help the children face the competitive world once they complete higher education. It was decided to bring legislation to introduce English as medium of instruction in government schools from the next academic year. The Cabinet decided that the bill will be introduced in the next legislature session.

With growing criticism over private schools charging exorbitant fees, the Cabinet decided to regulate fees in private schools and colleges. The Cabinet also approved a proposal by Education Minister Sabitha Indira Reddy to set up a university exclusively for women.

A cabinet sub-committee has been constituted to draft guidelines after a detailed analysis of the introduction of English as medium of instruction and regulating fee structure in private educational institutions. The sub-committee will be headed by the Education Minister with 10 other ministers as members. They include Information Technology and Industries Minister KT Rama Rao and Finance and Health Minister T Harish Rao.
