THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala State Commission for Protection of Child Rights has ordered to stop of boys' and girls' high schools in the state. All schools should implement mixed education from next academic year. Co-education should be implemented. Prior to this, the commission asked the education department to take necessary steps to improve the physical conditions of schools including toilets and to educate parents about the need for co-education.

The commission's order was on a petition filed by Anchal native Dr Isaac Paul. He stated in his petition that gender justice is being denied by running separate schools for boys and girls and co-education should be implemented here. There are 280 girls' schools and 164 boys' schools across the state. The Commission also directed the Principal Secretary, Director of Public Education and Director of SCERT to take action on the order and then reply.
