June 19,2015 (Agency): Schools have re-opened after a hot summer vacation while tiny drizzles are welcoming both teachers and students this academic year.  Students of both the Telugu speaking states are slowly getting a clarity over the syllabus, exams, entrance tests. Syllabus changes are rapidly happening in Telangana State, while Andhra Pradesh is continuing with the same syllabus. Telangana students are all set to get bridge course on the history and culture of the newly formed state after the latest revisions. The exercise of printing and dispatching the text books to various districts has not gained pace in both the states. The education sector which should be given top most priority is being neglected in both the states as it's not a income churner for the state governments.Most of the government schools in both the states are being preferred only by working class community because of mid-day meal program.  Schools in the interior villages and agency area are without much attendance of students. Besides, several schools function without teachers. School buildings are in a dilapidated state, forget about toilets and water facilities. Education is not preferred by parents due to rising prices and unless all the members of a family work hard  people are not being able to meet the ends. Children above 10 years are being sent to work in agriculture, canteens and beedi factories. Teachers have lost interest due to falling standards in quality student strength which leads to lack of enthusiasm in their

profession. Many teachers confess off the record that they consider school to kill time. Some may ask if quality education is not given how people are getting good grades and 85-100% pass in  X standard exams?  It's any body’s guess what is happening in exams and how evaluation is going on to save their jobs.  District Educational Officers and collectors are asking for only improvement in pass percentage, but not improvement ofstandards.Many students who passed out from these schools with first class marks can write neither a leave letter nor an essay about their town even in their own mother tongue.  No one can read an English newspaper and cannot answer simple questions. This is the fate of our primary education.  Sports of course is a neglected field.Most interesting aspect is that these schools do get funds for buying computers, inverters, and other scientific and laboratory materials which they spend too. But these schools will neither have the electricity connection nor will the system work as there will be no check on what is ordered and what is installed. It's all good on paper but nothing will be in a functional state.Both state and central governments are spending huge money on the development of education but purpose is not being served.  The output of most of these schools is giving rise to unemployed youth as they are not fit for for higher education or take up jobs. Hope both the governments take special care in implementation of quality education in these schools and rise standards in reality.
