Teachers to stage demonstration against Centre, State


Kolkata: Alleging the Central Government of spreading communalism and saffronising the education system of India and protesting against the attack on teachers, the ‘Sara Bangla Sikkha Bachao Committee’ called for a state wide demonstration. A meeting is scheduled to be held at University of Calcutta to chalk out plans regarding the programme.

Kartik Saha, the general Secretary of the Organization said although the central and the state governments have differed in many issues they are of the same opinion in the removal off the Pass-fail up to std. VIII. They alleged that the quality of education is going down due to this. They have also opposed the introduction of sex education in the syllabus.
