THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: A section of the officers are misleading the political leadership  to implement the 8+4 structure in the schools against the national education policy, alleged T Prasanna Kumar, president of Federation of  Higher Secondary Teachers Associations (FHSTA).

 The national education policy has envisaged the school education in three phases. The primary phase consists of classes from one to eight and classes nine and ten in the secondary phase and 11 and twelfth classes in the higher secondary.

 The Rashtreeya Madhyamic Siksha Abhiyan (RMSA) has advised school education in the primary, secondary and higher secondary structure for universalising access, improving quality and equity. 19 states in the country are following the 8+2+2 structure and 16 states, including Kerala and Union Territories, are following the 7+3+2 structure.

 The move to implement 8+4 structure in the schools would further deteriorate the quality of the Plus II, the base of education sector, the  FHSTA office-bearers told a press meet here on Friday.

 Federation of Higher Secondary and Vocational Teachers Associations will stage a sit-in on March 28 with seven demands including the implementation of 8+2+2 in the structure of schools.

K Muraleedharan MLA, will inaugurate the sit-in at 10 a.m. in front of the Secretariat. Joseph Vazhakkan MLA, will address the gathering.
