AP CM YS Jagan received a moral boost when slight over 96 percent of parents and students voted for having English medium in government schools. This was done based on the directions of AP High Court and now Jagan got a free hand in introducing English medium. Accordingly the YSRCP government has issued a G.O announcing the introduction of English medium in government schools.
For the academic year 2020-2021, English medium will be initiated from 1st to sixth standard. All the schools under Education department, Panchayat, Municipal and Tribal authorities will be introducing English medium. But for the schools under minority section, the students and parents would be given a choice to select the medium of study.
But for the classes of 7th to 10th standard, the government plans to introduce English medium in yearly basis. Yet the YSRCP government made it mandatory to have Telugu as a subject.
The Education department has made many recommendations to the schools to follow the G.O. and among them is not to force students to take unnecessary measure to get used English medium quickly.
Finally, AP CM Jagan is doing what he had intended in the beginning to convert all the government schools with Telugu medium to English medium.
