Principal Senior Judge of the District Court Sadashiv Sultanpuri has called upon the teachers to create awareness about law among children, along with the prescribed curriculum.

Inaugurating a law awareness programme for teachers organised by the District Legal Services Authority, District Bar Association and the office of the Deputy Director of Public Instruction here on Saturday,

Mr. Sultanpuri said that instead of concentrating only on completing the syllabi, teachers should create awareness among children about their rights and duties, which would help them understand the democratic system at an early stage of their life.

“However, teachers should understand them thoroughly before teaching,” he said.

A major drawback with the current system was that everybody spoke about rights of children, working women and senior citizens, but nobody was ready to raise awareness about it.
