'Give equal treatment to special schools'

They appealed that the schools for special children should be brought under Department of Public Instruction and that all facilities available in government schools should be extended to these schools as well. Benefits of the mid-day meal scheme and free uniform should be provided for these children.

Government should facilitate a compulsory monthly allowance of Rs 1,000 to each mentally retarded kid irrespective of any other criterion like parents’ annual income, they demanded.
The State unit of the Association will observe black day on Teachers’ Day (September 5) and stage a protest in front of the Chief Minister’s residence in Bangalore.  President of the Association Agnes Hemavathi, Joint Secretary Janaradhan, Member Ravindra, Secretary Sadhana Kini, Udupi District Teachers’ Association Secretary Muril Premalatha were present.
