: State Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Minister Kodali Srivenkateswara Rao (Nani) has said that the government's goal is the comprehensive development of students from the foundation level.  Mana Badi Nadu- Nedu in Krishna District Gudivada constituency on Thursday reviewed the implementation of the program.  Speaking on the occasion, Minister Kodali Nani said that the government has sanctioned Rs 14.85 crore for the modernization of government schools in Gudivada constituency as part of the Mana Badi Nadu- Nedu program.  With the funds, the first batch of selected public schools will have toilets, fresh water supply, major and minor repairs, full electrification, installation of tube lights, fans, furniture for students and teachers, green chalk boards, school painting, English lab, kitchen, parapet and so on.  The second phase says work has begun.  Meanwhile, he said the government has embarked on several changes in teaching for the holistic development of children.  We are launching this program from the 2020-21 academic year.  He said that textbooks would be designed to reflect the culture of the state of Andhra Pradesh.  He said the government would start printing books in Telugu and English.  He explained that there are six types of schools coming up in the new education system.  Jagananna Amma Vodi, Mana Badi Nadu - Nedu, the number of students in government schools has increased significantly due to programs like Jagananna Vidya Kanuka and Jagananna Gorumudda launched by the government in the education sector.  The National Achievement Survey in 2017 found that students have the lowest level of overall competence and reading ability, leading to the formation of an expert committee by the government in 2019.  The committee will study the minimum standards in education, the declining learning outcomes among students and submit a report on the steps to be taken to enhance them.  He also said that the government has formulated proper plans to reduce the number of school dropouts.  Over the past two years, there have been several rounds of talks with unions, intellectuals, academics and other stakeholders on the new education policy being implemented by the government.  He said that he had met directly with the students, parents and representatives of the school education committees in an effort to create a comprehensive understanding of the national education policy.  He said there were conditions for students to compete at the national and international levels to get better opportunities.  With this, the government has decided to change the examination system along with the syllabus currently in force, said Minister Kodali Nani.
