Education Ministry is seeking support from all stakeholders in resolving the issue of students resorting to violence in public places.

Education Minister Premila Kumar said they had counselling sessions in schools, but also needed support from the communities in resolving this issue.

“We have introduced civic and moral education in schools,” she said.

“We have brought civic values back into the classroom to develop moral values in students.

“We also need support from parents so it’s a responsibility basically from all stakeholders.”

Meanwhile, Mrs Kumar said the ministry would be guided by UNICEF, WHO and the Ministry of Health to deal with monkeypox cases if identified in the country.
