Why casteism should be abolished in educational institutions?

Why casteism should be abolished in educational institutions?

In August of last year, an intermediate caste student brutally attacked two Scheduled Class school children in Nanguneri, Tirunelveli district. The Tamil Nadu government then formed a committee, led by retired Justice K.Chandru, to find solutions to keep brotherhood intact and bring the students together. He has turned in his report to M. K. Stalin, the Chief Minister.
He recommends eliminating caste symbols in government and private schools, requiring permission to start new schools only after assurance of no caste markers. Headmasters from dominated areas should be chosen based on social justice, and coloured ropes and tilaks should be banned. Caste names should not appear in student attendance registers.
There is no caste discrimination before the law; All are equal. Eradicating caste differences is not something that can be done immediately. At the same time, there is no alternative opinion that measures should be taken.
When Late Kamaraj was the Chief Minister, he introduced the uniform scheme so that there should be no discrimination among school students. Similarly, Justice Chanduru has given recommendations to carry out awareness-based early caste eradication activities in schools.
Without a doubt, the M.K. Stalin-led Tamil Nadu government will carefully review the recommendations and take the appropriate action since the endeavour will be successful.
