Students to join protest against meet on education

TRIVANDRUM — Opposition to the global education meet being organised by the Kerala government at Cochin next month to showcase opportunities for higher education in the state has intensified with a section of the students joining the protests.

The AISF has joined Maoist organisations and the All Kerala Private College Teachers Association in opposing the meet starting on February 6, saying it was aimed at further commercialisation of education.

It was alleged that the meet will pave the way for implementing the latest World Bank prescription that those investing money should get enough return.
