Telangana Deputy Chief Minister Kadiam Srihari today expressed concern over the Centre failing to respond to his CABE committee report
pertaining to certain amendments that would help provide better education to girl children across the country.
The report favoured free education to all girls up to the post-graduation level across the country.
Speaking to the media after a two-day meeting of the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) chaired by Union Minister for Human Resources Development Prakash Javadekar, Kadiam said that the Centre had not taken a decision on any of the resolutions made by the sub-committees in this regard, and urged it to correct the same.
Kadiam further said that the Centre did not appear serious about making amendments to the existing educational program for girls, and that the meetings held so far were just part of the routine.
However, Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said that his ministry was working to strengthen the education system across the country, and added that such meetings between the union and states would be conducted every three months to learn from and adopt the best practices of the various state governments. He also expressed his appreciation for the Gurukul institutions established in Telangana.
For the uninitiated, CABE is an advisory board that was set up to make recommendations to the Centre on improving the educational standards in the country, the steps needed to improve the educational system, and the amendments for providing better education to girl children across the country.
