Aimed at protecting and upholding the spirit of the Constitution of India among the children, the Kerala government has decided to make it compulsory for the schools to read out the preamble of the Constitution in the school assemblies.
Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan recently said that steps were being taken to make reading the preamble in school assemblies. It was being done so as to create awareness on the importance of Constitution, he added.
The Government has taken such a decision in response to the College Union leaders’ demand for ensuring Constitution studies to be an inevitable part of the curriculum when the Constitution and its values have been under attack. He said this while addressing the student leaders’ conclave in Kozhikode in Kerala.
The Chief Minister also assured 50 per cent reservation for women representatives in college union elections and also to include sex education as part of the curriculum. Another thing that he said was drafting a law with respect to campus politics.
The Student Leaders Conclave was held at the famous Farook College in Kozhikode and was aimed at eliciting the views of the student leaders in the development of the state.
Among the other announcements, Vijayan said steps have been taken to do away with internal marks so that the students are not harassed in the name of such marks.
