The Kerala Private (Aided) School Managers Association has demanded that the State Education Department inspect the basic facilities available on government and aided school campuses.

The association warned the department that the “move to weaken aided schools by levelling baseless allegations against them” regarding availability of basic facilities would be resisted.

The association convened a meeting here on Wednesday in protest against a move by the Director of Public Instructions (DPI) seeking reasons for not taking action against aided school managers for not maintaining toilets.

Presiding over the meeting, Kadampuzha Moosa Haji, district president of the association, said that threatening school managers with disqualification without inspecting the school campuses for availability of water and toilets was ridiculous. He said the managers would approach the court against the DPI's “irrational move.”

K.V.K. Pookoya Thangal, treasurer of the association, inaugurated the meeting. Nazer Edarikode, district secretary; Kumaran Ezhuthachan, vice president; and P. Zainul Abideen, joint secretary, spoke.
