The UPA government and its progressive forces have established national wide English Medium schools in order to serve the backward areas of India. These have been named 'Model Schools' by the UPA. They handed over these schools to the respective state governments three years back.
In AP, the situation is entirely different. From the beginning, the implementation of the programme faced major difficulties due to the pressure from illegal private schools and junior colleges as education is the biggest money making and money laundering sector in Andhra Pradesh. The big private educational institutions influenced the then Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar and created many hurdles in the process. But, Mr Kiran had to implement the Model School Programme as he received many ultimatums from the then Manmohan Government. But, the state government never cared much about the schools later.
The present TDP Government too not very much interested in the Model Schools though the results from the schools are excellent. The Model Schools are showing good results and are in great demand from the public. But, it seems the Government has second thoughts because the government is directly being run by the director of a big private educational institution. It's true the successive state governments of Andhra Pradesh played a huge role in killing the government educational and medical institutions. Now, they are also trying to destroy the Model Schools by not providing enough funds. The government wants to kill the morale of employees by not paying salaries regularly. The employees of the schools are receiving the pay only once in three or five months. Is the government right in doing so? There are no service rules till now. No health cards are provided to employees even after five years of service. Is there something cooking up?
