The Telangana government has decided not to shut down the government schools with less number of students.
Three days ago, the government had sent a notice to shut down the government schools with less students. But now the government has changed its decision. Most of these are English medium schools.
Telangana State Education Minister G Jagdishwar Reddy said that the government's policy was not to close any schools. There is an misunderstanding between the government and schools.
Around 2,700 schools across the state faces closure as a part of rationalisation. In a reply action by Chief Minister K C Rao lashed out the minister and officials for the decision to shut down the schools.
According to sources, the proposal for this came from school education commissioner M. Jagadeeshwar, to education secretary Vikas Raj. The latter and minister Jagdishwar Reddy signed on the proposal without discussing the conclusion.
