In a bid to bring back children to school, Andhra Pradesh chief minister Jagan Mohan Reddy launched Jaganna Vidya Kanuka scheme for the students studying in government schools. The new scheme would help in improving government schools’ quality and enrolments.
The AP government said, “CM Jagan Mohan Reddy launched yet another ambitious scheme for students studying in Government schools. Putting an end to the earlier practice of delay and erratic supply of textbooks, school uniforms, and other essentials, this scheme aims to improve government schools’ quality and enrolments.”
The scheme would aid in providing 42,34,222 kits to government school students who are enrolled in class 1 to 10 standards. These kits would be distributed across the state at a cost of Rs 650 crore and consist of three pairs of uniforms, one pair of shoes, two pairs of socks, prescribed textbooks, notebooks, a belt, and a school bag.
Apart from this, the state government has also started the Nadu-Nedu initiative to provide ten necessary facilities in all the schools before the beginning of the academic year.
The CM said, “This Government aims to protect every child’s education and provide the best education system to all. This scheme is another step towards increasing government schools’ enrollment rate and bringing down the dropout rate.”
