Surprise Inspection Of Schools
The villagers said that the senior officials of the education department, including collector Sandeep GR, are constantly conducting surprise inspections of schools in rural areas and instructing them to do the teaching work properly, but it has no effect on the teachers of their village schools. They come to school only for food supply. After coming to school, most of the teachers either rest like this, or are busy with their mobiles. The education level of the children studying in the village school is low, they do not even know the answers to simple questions.

We are continuously giving instructions to the teachers to reach the school on time and get the teaching work done in the stipulated time.
