Education Act may be amended

By Our Staff Correspondent

MANGALORE, MARCH 4. The Government is planning to amend the Education Act to facilitate fixing of definite salaries for staff in unaided schools and colleges, the MLC, K. Balakrishna Bhat, has said.

The Minister for Higher Education, D. Manjunath, gave an assurance in this regard at a meeting of elected representatives in Bangalore on Tuesday, he said. In a press release here, Mr. Bhat said the meeting arrived at a consensus in this regard. Mr. Bhat noted that the Minister had agreed to repeal certain sections of the Act pertaining to discipline and control and bring about changes, which will prevent the managements of school and colleges from victimising the staff on flimsy grounds and deny them proper remuneration. The meeting agreed to revise the syllabus of `Mahiti Sindhu' programme in operation in the State for the past four years. Mr. Manjunath agreed to incorporate Kannada software to provide computer education to students of Kannada-medium schools, Mr. Bhat said.
