KOCHI: Cooperation and Coir Minister G. Sudhakaran has said that the professional colleges in the State were facing a dearth of faculty. He was speaking after laying the foundation stone for the nursing college and hostels on the premises of the Cooperative Medical College, Kalamassery, here on Wednesday.
The faulty policies on higher education and professional education for 40 years have resulted in such a situation, said the Minister. The situation has affected medical colleges the most. Understanding the situation, the Co-operative Academy of Professional Education (CAPE) has taken the initiative of creating institutions that would provide more professionals in various fields of medicine, engineering and management.
