The educational institutions particularly Intermediate and degree colleges are worried lot about the December 31, 2010, deadline set by the Justice Srikrishna Committee to submit its report to solve Telangana conundrum.

Managements of the eudctaional institutions in the district are worried over the likely repercussions following Telangana Rashtra Samiti president K. Chandrashekhar Rao warning of launching a ‘civil war' if the panel report is not in favour of Telangana.

Sensing possible trouble in the region, the institutions in the district are busy completing the syllabus well in advance before December 31 to avoid any kind of disturbance to the students' career.

Already, in the last academic year students lost two precious months due to the Telangana agitation in the district.

Careers at stake

“This time, we are not going to spoil the career of the students and have decided to complete the syllabus in advance by conducting special classes and by also starting revision of syllabus,” said a principal of a private junior college.

People positive

“People of the region are positive about formation of Telangana with the submission of Srikrishna committee report. In case, the report is not in favour of Telangana, there is likely to be unrest in the region. Sensing possible trouble after December 31, we have decided to complete the syllabus before December 15 itself, said Alphores Educational Institutions chairman V. Narender Reddy.

Students cooperating

He said students were also cooperating in the completion of the syllabus well in advance before the submission of Justice Srikrishna committee report. “There is nothing wrong in completion of syllabus in advance as it will help students revise in the later,” he added.

State schools too

Similarly, government schools and colleges have also started completing the syllabus before December end. A government college lecturer said syllabus would normally be completed in December. However, keeping in view the future consequences, we have intensified conduct of classes to complete the syllabus, he added.

Even private schools are working towards completing syllabus for SSC students before December. They had started conducting classes for SSC students during the summer vacation itself.
