Andhra Pradesh chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy plans to digitize 45,000 schools by the next school year, said Audimulapu Suresh, state minister for education.
“Officials are working day and night to meet the CM deadline for completing work on the Nadu Nedu Initiative by the beginning of the academic year in June,” Suresh said.
It will be the first time in the history of Andhra Pradesh that state schools offer stiff competition to private schools and institutions in terms of digitization.
This plan will be implemented gradually. In the first phase, the government aims to install 10,000 smart TVs, the cost of which will total 45 to 50 crores.
Each state school in the state will have its own smart television for digitized learning. Therefore, the days are over when parents think of sending their children to private schools at a higher cost for a good education.
At the beginning of the first week of September, during a review meeting at the camp office in Tadepalli, CM Reddy was directed to officials that no student should be excluded from digital education and that all state schools should be equipped with the centralized integrated system of smart TVs.
