The Amrita Bazaar Patrika

Cause for Misgivings

“………………It would appear that the Government of Kerala has started at the right end. The kerala Education Bill, which has been just published, aims primarily at improving the aided schools in the State through extending control over management and through recruitment of the right type of teachers. It may be noted that the Bill provides for extension of pension, provident fund and insurance benefits to teachers in private aided schools, the entire cost of which will be borne by the State Government. This move of the Kerala Government should provide food for thought to other State Governments.”
