How to vote on advisory panels in Kerala
Kerala is set to pass the first advisory panel of its kind in the country, with the Kerala State Education Ministry setting up a three-member advisory panel.
The board is headed by a retired professor and former Kerala Chief Minister K K Chandrasekharan and two retired retired civil servants.
The advisory panel will have five members, all of whom will be women.
The panel is a nodal body for educational, research and other activities of the state.
It is tasked with promoting education, research, awareness, understanding and empowerment of students, parents and the public.
The Kerala government had earlier decided to set up a board of education advisory panels to ensure a level playing field for education in the state and ensure fair and equal access to education in all levels.
The panel would be headed by the Chief Minister and three other retired civil servant members, besides three former students of the Kerala Government and one retired teacher.
The board would also have the mandate to look into all matters pertaining to education.
The KKMG, which is headed in the Government, had earlier set up advisory panels for all aspects of education including literacy, science, science education, arts and cultural activities.
