Private schools can hike fees by 12%, proposes AP. Visakhapatnam: School education is all set to get costlier in AP with the state government proposing to hike fees in each class by 12%. As of now, private educational institutions can hike their annual fees by 10%. The proposal is part of the draft AP Self-Financed Independent Schools (Establishment and Regulation) Act 2017, draft AP Self-Financed Independent Schools (Establishment and Regulation) Rules 2017 and Draft Model Code Disclosures 2017. The state government came up with the proposal in order to streamline the establishment and rein in the functioning of private schools. Currently, the government is seeking feedback from various stakeholders. However, fee hike doesn't end there as the zonal fee regulatory committees, which will be constituted as part of the Rules, will take decisions on proposals received from schools regarding the proposed increase beyond the permissible limit. Right to Education (RTE) Forum state convenor Narava Prakasa Rao said the draft rules are aimed at promoting corporate schools and watering down the existing RTE Act. "While neighbouring states like Telangana are proposing KG-to-PG free education, AP is giving a free hand to private schools," said Prakasa Rao.

AU plans course re-structure 01-Jul-2017
AU plans course re-structure to make students employable. Visakhapatnam: At a time when non-professional courses rarely provide employment unless a student has done path-breaking research in his/her field of study, Andhra University plans a major revamp in their postgraduate courses to ensure that students are ready for the professional world. The courses in traditional arts, sciences and humanities streams will have a new structure from the 2018-19 academic year. Speaking to TOI, AU registrar Prof V Uma Maheswara Rao said, "The AP State Council of Higher Education is keen on revitalising isolated and insulated courses like botany and commerce. Making a student studying a non-professional course employable at least after post graduation is a major challenge and we need to address it now." "The problem today is that no field of study can exist in isolation. We have signed various MoUs with organisations such as Suraksha Pharma Pvt Ltd, NG Ranga Agriculture University, Indian Air Force and we have an informal agreement with the Indian Navy and IBM. Many more MoUs are in the pipeline," the registrar said, adding that the MoUs aim for boosting inter-disciplinary research apart from making non-professional courses more viable. University vice-chancellor Prof G Nageswara Rao noted, "Today students taking up technical and professional courses find it easy to get jobs. However, students of pure science and arts courses are struggling to do the same. This is because of two reas...
