Andhra Pradesh government is keen to revamp the system of the Government schools to make Education more affordable to the poor. The Chief Minister instructed the officials to examine the matter of running all the social welfare residential schools and hostels under PPP model immediately.
Government schools are plagued by neglect over the decades and inducting private players would bring transparency in the maintenance as well as improve the quality of education offered there. A similar model was introduced by UPA-2 government but it never moved any inch. Later NDA government did nothing about the scheme.
But the major challenge is to make sure private players do not see it as a money making machine which in case will kill the character of these schools which are now basically meant for poorer sections. With ambitious Naidu taking it up the fate can change and can impart corporate education to every poor student.
