Symbolic act:N. Peethambara Kurup, MP, inaugurating a dharna organised by the Aided Higher Secondary Teachers Association in Kollam on Wednesday.
KOLLAM: N. Peethambara Kurup, MP and Congress leader, has accused Education Minister M.A. Baby of adopting wrong policies leading to quality erosion in higher secondary education in the State.
Inaugurating a dharna organised the Aided Higher Secondary Teachers Association (AHSTA) here on Wednesday, the MP said there were serious attempts to create a monopoly of Communist ideas in the education sector, adding to the quality erosion. Those responsible for leading the education sector should drop their utopian ideas, the MP said.
Mr. Kurup inaugurated the demonstration by playing the chenda. He symbolised the action as one to open the eyes and ears of the Education Minister.
The demands raised by AHSTA included immediate solution to the junior-senior issue of the higher secondary teachers, drop the move to merge the higher secondary sector with the DPI and withdraw Saturday as a working day.
The dharna was led by AHSTA vice-president T. Prasanna Kumar. AHSTA leaders Srirangam Jayakumar, Rajan Malanada, Casmir Thomas, A. Salaudeen, Philip George Sam George and Sree Kumar took part.
