The State Government of Andhra Pradesh has decided to execute the CBSE system for 1st to 7th classes across various schools starting from the academic year 2021-22. The CBSE system will be increased gradually every year from classes 8 to 10. As per the latest release issued from the Chief Ministers Office, all the classes from 1 to 10 will be under CBSE by the year 2024.
The government made this move amid ongoing litigation in the Supreme Court against the conversion of all government schools from classes 1 to 6 to English medium. This particular move has brought immense animosity among the opposition. The Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has decided on switching over to the Central Board of Secondary Education. This move is to fully remove the Telugu medium of education.
As per the CBSE curriculum, Telugu is the only subject taught in the Telugu medium. The curriculum will be in English or Hindi medium. The state government didn’t mention whether it will completely remove the state syllabus or introduce the CBSE system parallel to it. B. Rajsekhar, the Principal Secretary of School Education didn’t respond to the queries over the issue, one of the senior officials in the department stated. He further said that the introduction of the CBSE system was ‘only a proposal’, as of now.
One of the officials said, ‘This is only one of the proposals we discussed at a meeting with the Chief Minister on Wednesday. We have to study the pros and cons before going ahead, so no final decision has been taken in this regard.’ However, the CMO clearly said in its release that the state government will execute the CBSE system from the academic year 2021-22.
