The Andhra Pradesh government has recently given approval to a proposal dealing with renewal of the education system which would include changes in syllabi at various schools, colleges and technical institutions and universities.
Information and Technology Minister Palle Raghunatha Reddy, after finishing the cabinet meeting disclosed the fact to the media that to enhance the quality of education in the state and make its student ready to face global competition the government has decided to revamp the entire education system. He further added that a separate unit would be established at an engineering college in each district that would help upgrading skills of 1,000 students. In these units those students who are undergoing their engineering, polytechnic and ITI courses would get training facilities.
The University teacher and lecturers would now also have to undergo training, so that they can upgrade their teaching skills, matching the ongoing international standards. There could also be a provision for hiring foreign university academicians by AP universities. Along with these, it was decided in the meeting that only academicians now would get appointed as Vice-chancellors and executive councilors in universities, which would further help the universities in overall growth and development.
