Introduce ‘Human Rights Education’ in schools in UT : FPR urge govt

(UNI) Federation for People’s Rights (FPR) here on Monday urged the government to introduce “Human Rights Education” in schools in the Union Territory.

Federation Secretary G Sugumaran in a statement here said ‘the students need to understand the rights provided in Constitution and other acts and they should also be made aware of the important judgments by Supreme Court and High Courts in the states’.
He said different organizations had already put forth this demand to the government and an NGO “HOPE” prepared text books on ‘human rights education’ with the help of experts. It also assured to print copies for the government in case of any financial constraints on part of it.
However, the government had failed to take any initiative in this regard, he said.
