Telangana Chief Minister, K Chandrasekhar Rao has agreed to set top separate intermediate board for the newly-carved state.
According to the AP Reorganisation Act, both the states should continue with common examinations and common admissions for the period of years.
TS, Minister for Education, G Jagadeesh Reddy, had raised the issue to set up intermediate board.
TS CM KCR had signed on the file related to the formation of Telangana intermediate board during his visit to the national academy of construction. It is understood that the government of Telangana will adopt the AP Intermediate Board Act for the purpose of creating the Telangana Board. It is believed that the government will issue the related GO shortly.
Around 50% class 10th students in government and private schools in Telangana, cannot read and write English, a survey said. The School Education Department did a survey that more than 70% to 80% of teachers of more than 5,000 schools in 5 districts of the state are unfit to teach in English medium.
"They were not even well aware of the curriculum. If teachers are not able to understand the syllabus, how can they make students understand it," said an official from the School Education Department.
"There has been no training programme for the teachers ever since the last session when English medium was introduced in the government schools," said P Venkat Reddy, president of the Progressive Recognised Teachers Union (PRTU).
