In the southern Indian state of Karnataka, around 30,000 child care workers embarked on a long march on December 10. Their main demand was to have dialogue with the state government over the order that will shift education for 3-6 year old children from anganwadi centers to pre-schools. Anganwadi workers are concerned as they provide healthcare and nutrition along with education, making anganwadis complete child care centers. This will not be the case in private pre-schools.
