CRC Change Agents won a case on Child Rights in High Court in Kerala

The Association for Promotion and Protection of Child Rights in India, APPROCH, is an organisation formed by the CRC Change Agents of Kerala, India, who attended the International Training Programme on Child Rights conducted under Sida, at Lund University, Sweden.
The organization filed a case in 2015 before the High Court of Kerala to prevent teachers of Aided Schools from contesting elections.
APPROCH´s point was that it was against Child Rights because teachers would be absent from schools for long periods during the elections and after the elections if they are elected to power.
The High Court has now, 24 February 2021, issued a favourable judgement in favour of APPROCH´s claim.
Aided Schools are schools run by private individuals or agencies. They appoint teachers of their choice but the salaries of the teachers are paid by the Government on a par with Government school teachers.
The judgement, which will benefit millions of children in Kerala, is a shining success story emanating from the Sida-ITP on Child Rights.
The 193 page judgement was issued by a Division Bench presided over by the Chief Justice.
