Opportunity to recast school system

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The shortfall of 2.5 lakh students in Kerala schools � determined as the difference between the number of students shown in the rolls and the numbers present during a subsequent one-day verification by government officials � this academic year may well turn out to be a golden opportunity for the State government to recast the school system in terms of the number of schools, infrastructural facilities and the redistribution and retraining of teachers.

This year, the one-day verification in schools revealed that a total of 40.92 lakh students were studying in government and aided schools from Class I to X.
