“Badi Pilustondi”(School Calling) is a continuous programme to improve the situation in the schools and thereby education scenario.

Badi Pilustondi Programme Strategy:
The objectives of “Badi Pilustondi” shall be achieved through community participation, parents’ involvement, effective teacher participation and also regular monitoring by the education department. The knowledge of NGOs, CBOs and Corporates will also be utilized in improving the infrastructure as well as the quality of education.
The resources under SSA and RMSA programs shall be utilized fully and effectively and in a transparent manner. It is observed that though schools are provided grants under SSA and RMSA, many schools as on today do not have television facilities through a number of lessons are being telecasted through MANA TV. Timely utilization of funds will ensure better grants from Govt. of India.
Success lies in creating awareness among parents about the importance of education and highlighting the benefits being provided by the Govt. to take this education to their doorstep. Awareness shall also be created about the mid-day meal program.
It is established that many of the children are not utilizing the mid-day-meal as food is not tasty and not being served hot. The local community and School Management Committees should be made active in effective supervising of mid-day-meal benefit being availed by all the children.
The supervisory officers in the Education Department like., MEOs, Dy.EOs, DEOs need to visit schools on a regular basis to ensure that the academic calendar is followed and the syllabus is completed as per timeline. Children enrolled should be retained and dropouts arrested fully. The performance of the children in various aspects should be reviewed and monitored.
It is revealed in many Annual Status of Education Report (ASER) and State Level Achievement Survey 2014 (SLAS) the learning levels of the children in Govt. Schools are far from satisfactory. There is a need for making concerted efforts for ensuring effective academic monitoring of schools in order to improve learning level of students in all classes.
The involvement of all other departmental officers as a part of “Janmabhoomi-Maa vooru” is expected to motivate parents to send children to school, especially girl children. AP Badi Pilustondi Programme Strategy & Objectives.
