VIJAYAWADA: Information Technology company Dell today submitted a proposal to the Andhra Pradesh Government for initiating a technology-driven education system in the state from the next academic year.

A Dell delegation met Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu here this afternoon and made a presentation on improving the educational standards in schools using technology, a press release from the Chief Minister's Office stated.

Naidu asked Dell to come up with concrete proposals and plan of action that would be beneficial to the 72 lakh students in government and private schools in the state.

The government was keen on reforming the education system by introducing a new educational policy from the 2016-17 academic year, he said.

"If you come up with concrete proposals, we will entrust the responsibility of implementing the new education policy to you," Naidu told the delegation.

The Dell representatives told the chief minister they were ready to partner with the state government in this regard and would come up with their proposals by June, the release added.

Dell is working on projects in Brazil and Pakistan to improve educational standards in schools.

The company was implementing a project in Haryana for the last two years and that was yielding good results, according to representatives of the company.

"The school education system is better in Andhra Pradesh compared to other states. We will help the state in introducing international standards of education to make it a knowledge hub and place it among the top three in the country in the next five years," the delegation said.

Naidu said good ideas should be effectively implemented. Only then the state will be able to produce better results.
