HYDERABAD: The department of school education department is planning to conduct surprise inspection of government schools across Telangana to assess the quality of education and infrastructure.

Kadiam Srihari, deputy chief minister and education minister has recently directed the officials to pay regular visits to the schools and prepare a detailed report on existing problems in the schools to improve them before the next academic year.

He also directed the officials to visit government schools without prior intimation so that the attendance of both the teachers and students can be checked.

The officials were asked to take immediate action against the teachers who were found missing from their duties or not performing well. A senior official of the school education department said action could range from warning to suspension depending on the mistake.

Implementation of the mid-day meal scheme was also to be assessed, according to the directions given by the minister.

During inspections, the officials were asked to visit classrooms and pose questions to the students on different subjects to check their learning levels. It is learnt that the primary focus would be only on a few subjects like mathematics and English. It may be recalled that an earlier survey by the department found that the Class X students from government and private schools in the state were unable to read and write properly in English.

According to sources in the school education department, a detailed report will be prepared basing on the observations made during the inspections and submitted to the education minister. A prescribed format with the required details has already been given to the officials in which they have to fill the details.

However, only a few schools in districts would be inspected. Each officer was allotted one district to visit and gather the information.
