3650 AP schools to be shut down in 2018

The government school education is in dire straits in Andhra Pradesh with 3650 schools facing closure and 9265 teachers posts vacant since 2011 .

The supreme court was told by a three member committee led Ashok in a PIL that AP government was promoting private education in a big way and 1167 government schools were shut down in 2016 .

The committee said most of the schools in tribal and SC/ST areas are being shut down in name of rationalization but permitting private schools with higher fees to function from those regions itself.
