Naranbhai Patel, chairman of the Federation of Education Coordinating Committee, and Natwarsinh Dodia, PA of Education Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama, said in no uncertain terms that the issue was not discussed at the meeting today and that the decision taken was therefore completely wrong.

The meeting discussed issues including the ratio of teachers per class in Std. 9 and 12 in rural schools, change in result based grant policy, new admissions within one month after the commencement of schools, what to do to fill the vacancies of principals and teachers.

In today's meeting held at GCRT Gandhinagar, the issue of Unlock-2 guideline that students from Std. 9 to 12 can go to the school from September 21 to get the guidance of teachers with their parents' consent form was discussed.

In today's meeting chaired by state education minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama, three or four important issues were discussed including reduction of curriculum and non-reduction of classes in schools.
