Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu will launch Knowledge Mission to realise his vision for developing the State into an Education and Knowledge hub in Visakhapatnam on Wednesday. The Knowledge Mission is part of government’s first of its kind initiative in the country to usher education reforms and create entrepreneurs who can generate employment opportunities. Its objective is to transform A.P. into one of the three performing States by 2022-23 and as the best State in the country for higher education by 2029.

Apart from increasing gross enrolment ratio, the Knowledge Mission will address educational inequity between rural and urban areas, improve quality of education, invest in faculty development, ensure youth employability, align vocational education, promote arts and humanities, encourage public private partnerships and industry collaboration and initiate a reform process to remove regulatory road blocks, the release added. The State government will adopt a two-track approach to achieve objectives under the Mission- to improve existing institutions by identifying structural gaps and initiate changes in existing curriculum. The second approach is to work towards creating new institutions in the State by identifying areas where they will be viable and necessary including establishing off-shore institutions which will partner with international institutions.
