The Telangana government has decided to establish KG to PG Free Education Institutions’ in all 119 Assembly constituencies in the state. The government has readied its plan to start implementation of this scheme by next year in a phased manner.
The preliminary proposal for this popular scheme includes 15 acre of land for each campus, encompassing hostels and other facilities. According to the proposals, each Assembly constituency would have a similar kind of institution across the state.
Officials said that school dropouts will be given preference in the initial stages of admissions
Government sources said that as per the plan 1st to 5th standards will have two sections and 6th to 10th classes would have three sections each. Each section will have 40 students. However, the proposals cannot be considered as final as experts are still suggesting several other patterns.
By 2015-16, the government is keen to establish 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th classes and the remaining classes by year 2016-17.
According to the proposals made by academics to the government, these institutions would have Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) syllabus. Teaching would be imparted in mother tongue from the Class 1st to 5th and it would be in English medium thereafter,” the sources said.
Department of Education officials said that school dropouts will be given preference in the initial stages of admissions. The respective district collectors would look after the land acquisition and disbursement of funds meant for such institutions, added the sources.
