The Amma Vodi scheme being mooted by YS jagan Mohan Reddy promises Rs 15,000 financial aid to the families for sending their students to the government schools. The scheme will be launched on January 26, 2020. The scheme is a big hit as several parents can be seen lining up for admissions in government schools.
In fact, some schools reportedly have put up 'No-admissions' board' on their school premises this despite the rule that government schools cannot deny admissions. There is also a surge in the demand for textbooks and uniforms as well. But then, this will bring new challenges to the government schools now.
But with the rise in the number of students, it is worrying that there is stuff crunch to meet the need of the rising number. Additionally, many teachers are also awaiting promotions to secondary school. We will have to see how the government takes up this challenge and change the face of Public education.
