Education is an important aspect of one’s life. Good education makes an individual a better human being. But the condition of the government education system is not up to the mark. The private schools offer several additional facilities to the student. But private school education is beyond the reach of many parents. To restore the current condition of the government schools, the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh will implement the Mana Badi Nadu Nedu Scheme. The successful implementation of the scheme will enhance the glory of the schools and the state education system.
