Thiruvananthapuram: The government is all set to introduce the school integration scheme from this academic year onwards.
General Education Minister C Raveendranath said the government would implement the unification in phases.
The scheme envisages only one ‘School Education Director’ in the place of DPI and Higher Secondary Director.
The plan has already met with stiff opposition from various teachers unions.
In the new arrangement, examinations up to higher secondary will be carried out by ‘Pareeksha Bhavan’, which now marshals only SSLC examinations.
The decision to introduce schemes stems from the recommendations of the Khader Commission report.
The government appointed the commission as the Central assistance would be available only if high school and higher secondary sections are unified under one authority.
