    The Telangana School Education Department (TSED) is facing challenges in functioning smoothly. Over the past 10 years, decisions regarding education in the state have been controlled by higher-ups in the government, leaving schools, colleges, and universities with little autonomy. This lack of independence has affected policy decisions and the academic well-being of students.

    Three years ago, TSED mandated teachers to undergo online training called ‘National Initiative for School Heads’ and Teachers’ Holistic Advancement’ (NISHTHA). This program aimed to enhance teaching methods and create a positive learning environment for educators and students. It was part of implementing the New Education Policy-2020 (NEP-2020).

    The program included training on various subjects like educational games, interactive activities, and counseling skills for teachers. However, there was confusion about the implementation of NEP-2020 at the state level. Despite this, teachers participated in the training voluntarily to improve their skills.

    The training focused on adopting new pedagogies for different subjects in light of NEP-2020. While central schools embraced these changes, TSED faced challenges in implementing them due to unclear directives from the state government. The lack of decision-making autonomy has hindered the department’s ability to adapt to new educational initiatives.

    As education systems evolve globally, TSED remains stagnant without the freedom to make crucial decisions independently. The delay in implementing NEP-2020 reflects the department’s dependence on government officials for guidance. This lack of autonomy has persisted for years, with no clear direction from successive governments or education ministers.
