Andhra Pradesh CM Jagan conducted a review on school education. The meeting was held at the camp office in Thadepalligudem. Jagan inquired about the conditions in the schools after Corona. Officials explained to CM Jagan that the corona effect on schools was not big due to the measures taken by the government. All the teachers said that they are also actively involved in the duties as the vaccination has been completed. Public and private schools combined accounted for 73 per cent of attendance in August, increased to 82 per cent in September. Attendance was 85 percent in October, officials said. Attendance at government schools has risen sharply, with 91 per cent currently attending, officials said.

CM Jagan made it clear to the authorities that the spirit of the 'Amma Odi' scheme should continue. He said that they have spent thousands of crores of rupees to complete over 15,000 schools in the first phase. The CM hoped that the spirit of Amma Odi would continue and that all children would go astray. 

He said steps should be taken to bring CBSE affiliation to all schools. By 2024, children will be able to write CBSE exams. It has been made clear that every high school must have a playground. The CM directed the officers to prepare a plan. The review meeting was attended by Education Minister Adimulapu Suresh, School Education Chief Secretary Buditi Rajasekhar, Women and Child Welfare Chief Secretary AR Anuradha, Finance Secretary N Gulzar and Women and Child Welfare Director (Direction Special Officer) Kritika Shukla.
