`B.Ed. college issue disgraceful'

By Our Staff Reporter

KOZHIKODE, FEB. 13. The achievements in the education sector should not be judged simply by counting the number of schools and colleges each community received, the Union Minister of State for Defence, O. Rajagopal, said here today.

Inaugurating the silver jubilee celebrations of the National Teachers Union this morning, Mr. Rajagopal said that allegations in giving Non Objection Certificates (NOCs) to start B.Ed colleges had brought disgrace to the State. In fact the standard of education had also deteriorated in the past several years, he added. For the last 24 years, education sector was controlled by people who treated lighting the traditional lamp a sin. Education became another market commodity just like copra and cardamom, he said.

Mr. Rajagopal said that the Mata Amritanandamayi Trust had also requested for starting a B.Ed college in Kollam. The authorities had also inspected the campus. But the college did not figure in the list of the sanctioned colleges when it was announced, he said.
