    The state government of Telangana has to decide whether school funding policies should focus on the well-being of all school-going children or only some. This raises questions about the purpose and effectiveness of the school education department in ensuring the education of all children.

    One approach taken by the government is to establish community-based residential welfare schools to support children from disadvantaged backgrounds in Educationally Backward Blocks. This initiative, supported by schemes like Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan and Rashtriya Madhyamik Siksha Abhiyan, has led to the creation of additional classrooms, toilets, and Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas. Model schools and residential welfare schools have also been set up, with spending ranging from Rs 50,000 to Rs 1.5 lakh per student annually.

    These efforts have been successful, with positive results and learning outcomes attracting attention from both within the country and abroad. However, other schools like Zilla Parishad Schools and Mandal Praja Parishad Schools are struggling due to neglect and inadequate funding. These schools receive funding based on the number of students they have, which can lead to challenges in meeting expenses for essential activities and events.

    There is also a controversy surrounding private and corporate schools in Telangana, with accusations of excessive fees and lack of regulation. Despite promises to implement a Private Schools Fee Regulation Act, these issues persist, leading to legal battles and dissatisfaction among parents.
