Villagers of Potharam of Kathalapur mandal in Jagityal district, resolved to send their kids only to government schools. They made a resolution to this effect, warning all parents that if they send their children to private schools, they will have to pay a fine of Rs. 50,000. They submitted the resolution to village sarpanch, Sirikonda Kavita. The villagers were forced to take this decision, in view of the government decision to shut down schools for lack of attendance. The villagers said that they would use the money to improve government schools.
