The UPA Government and its progressive forces have established national wide English Medium schools in order to serve the backward areas of India. These have been named 'Model Schools' by the UPA. They handed over these schools to respective state governments three years back.
Excellency punished - The plight of AP Model Schools
In AP, the situation is entirely different. From the beginning, the implementation of the programme faced major difficulties due to the pressure from illegal private schools and junior colleges as education is the biggest money making and money laundering sector in Andhra Pradesh. The big private educational institutions influenced the then Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar and created many hurdles in the process. But, Mr Kiran had to implement the Model School Programme as he received many ultimatums from the then Manmohan Government. But, the state government never cared much about the schools.
The present TDP Government too not very much interested in the Model Schools though the results from the schools is great. The Model Schools are showing good results and are in great demand from public. But, it seems the Government has second thoughts as the present government is directly being run by the director of a private educational institution. It's true the successive state governments of Andhra Pradesh played a great role in killing the government educational and medical institutions. Now, they are trying to destroy Model Schools also by not providing enough funds. The government wants to kill the morale of employees by not paying salaries regularly. The employees of the schools are receiving the salaries only once in three or five months. Is the government right in doing so? There are no service rules till now. No health cards are provided to employees even after five years of service. Is there something cooking up?
