Kerala Director Public Instruction S. Shanavas on Tuesday expressed ‘concerns’ over the quality of the education saying that the education quality is falling in the state.

He said that every year around 69,000 students get A+ but there are also students among them who don’t even know how to write correctly.

“Some of them even do not know how to write their name correctly. This is gross injustice with the other students,” he said.

Following Shanavas remarks, there was uproar in the state prompting State Education Minister V. Sivankutty to respond.

The minister said that not much needs to be looked into a statement made during a routine meeting of teachers. “These remarks should not be mistaken as that of the state government,” the minister said.

He said that the policy of the government is to protect and improve the quality of education standards in the state.

Leader of Opposition (LoP) V.D Satheesan said that the government should take note of what has been pointed out.
