The State government is planning to introduce kindergarten in government schools from this New Year. In order to benefit the economically backward sections also to decrease the dropout rates, the department of school education has taken this initiative. LKG and UKG have already been introduced in 2010, in some schools, so as to estimate the success of this plan.
Though members and heads of Unified teachers Association and Andhra pradesh Teachers Association are opposing this idea, citing the reason as inadequate infrastructure and efficient faculty in the government schools.
