Teachers’ organisations owing allegiance to the Opposition have decided to launch an agitation against the government decision to implement the Khader committee report.
Addressing presspersons after talks with Minister for Education C. Ravindranath here on Tuesday, union leaders said the discussion did not focus on the committee report. Instead, the Minister had put forward six proposals. He had failed to give a clear answer to the concerns raised by the unions.
The government, they alleged, was in a hurry to push forward with its “political agenda” without allowing for in-depth discussions.
They could not support the implementation of an incomplete report, the unions said, warning of an agitation from June 3.
Later, the Minister said there was no need for teachers to go on strike as the government wanted to continue to strengthen public education as it had done in the past three years.
