Minister for Education C. Ravindranath delivering the inaugural address at the educational and cultural meet organised in connection with the State meeting of the Kerala School Teachers’ Association has said that communalisation of the education sector is the continuation of its commercialisation.
Ravindranath had asked the teachers to strive towards developing the education sector.
Even the proponents of neo-liberalism have admitted that it had led to more discrimination. Ravindranath said that the strategy behind communalism was exploitation to share the spoils of capitalism. This issue could be observed everywhere in the world.
Education model was designed with the aim of developing minds with an affinity to vested interests. He further said, this should be countered by using education to create secular minds.
