Keep visiting the blog, will update with more links and result updates. All the best for students and parents :).

We @ Blossom also waiting for the results..Since 3 of our QUEST Education Center students appeared for the 12th standard exams. all the best for QEC Stuents,..!

Equality in Quality …not this year….!

Today’s headlines…Tamil Nadu government cancels the “Uniform Education System” from this year. ( not sure its a complete stop or a temporary one ). There were lot of controversies when DMK implemented this two years back. But still they formed a committee with a group of experienced educationalists. They came up with a system which comprises both state board and matriculation syllabus. It was apposed by almost all the matric schools and most of the government school staffs.

The truth behind the things is…the syllabus is a good one…but its little low for Matric schools and TOOOO high for government school children ( TEACHERS). Without making any alterations in the implementation system in the government schools…the old DMK govt. implemented the system. But now the same thing is canceled by present government. I’m not sure about they did it for a good cause…or for a revenge sort of thing (cheap politics). But its time to stop this temporarily and get started with a extraordinary implementation system. Without a good implementation system…there will be lot of drop outs from the school…after 8th standard.

Lot to go…and lot to see…! Lets wish that atleast this government makes some considerable progress in Government school education. Both in terms of education and infrastructure.

Report on 12th std exam results – TN 2009

12th results has been announced last week .  The pass percentage has been bit decreased when compared to last year and the students from rural tamil nadu glitter this year. Students from Chennai faced a little set back this year. Unlike last year the govt schools in Chennai  lack in marks and pass percentage when compared to the govt  schools out of Chennai.

The Chennai corporation schools are not upto the mark this time. Few schools have recorded worst pass percentage. Happy news is few of the most backward districts of tamilnadu has shown a wonderful performance.

Please find the link for the detailed and reader friendly report on the 12th standard results 2009. The report talks about the govt school progress, pass percentage, top scorers district wise and in whole. Sorry for not able to cover all the districts. All the data’s in the report were collected from the news papers like Dinamalar, dinathanthi,thinamani,thinakaran,thina chudar,thamiz oosai,thamiz news,malai murasu,times of India, The Hindu, Indian express,malai malar,thina sudar.

Report : 12th std exam 2009 results review – district wise

Some of the interesting facts ,

  • For 24th consecutive year  virudunagar dt has topped the list in pass percentage.
  • None of the Govt/corp schools in Chennai has secured 100 percent pass percentage.
  • Around 5 schools has recorded less than 50% pass percentage.
  • DAV schools of Chennai take the credits of the TOP marks of Tamil nadu (non tamil as first language) 1190,1188,1186.
  • Top 10 students (three ranks) were from outside Chennai schools.

These facts apart, lets come to the review of the results. I’m not here just to play a blame game on the govt schools standards by comparing with the private schools. And for time being we cannot compare these two. Because for comparing  we should have at least few facts as competing.

The biggest organization with large infrastructures , highest man power , surplus money, lots of super brains, with more students strength and technology in hands. I mean govt as the organization. What else one need to run a school successfully. Why govt schools fail to make a mark ? They can say 1000 reasons for all these but how long we are gonna tell reasons ? When we are gonna work on solving this ?

I’m not blaming this particular govt..but all the past govts. All these years I have never  heard of a productive plans on improving quality in education of govt schools. No political party speaks about these area. No manifesto has given a clear promise in education department. I accept that infrastructure wise the govt schools are improved a lot. Computers reached almost all the schools. But what is the use in it..? Without having the efficient teachers and  with no proper monitoring  all these are waste of money.

Question the schools and staffs for the worst results ? Suspend the teachers who shown some poor performance without a valid reason. Provide performance based incentives to the teachers. Re validate the qualification of a teacher to enter the schools. Do more screening for selecting a teacher.  Give promotions only based on the performance and not only with the experience and say no to quota based postings. Please remove the reservation atleast for this department. The education minister should be well educated. Undertake all the management govt schools from the remote villages. Provide school busses/vans for students transportation. Set a standard for teachers skills and monitor for two years and if not met provide them VRS and appoint new teachers with high skills. Close almost all the B’Ed colleges started in the recent years and few colleges are enough to produce highly skilled teachers. Do not recognize D’Ed (diplomain teacher training).

Still  more things to consider. I just wanted to make a note that , Education department is the one to be given top most priority which in turn give lots of improvement in India. Reconsructing the teachers ability will bring more changes initially and then we can consider on other things of education department.

Still I dream for the day that no NGO’s are working for govt schools to provide quality in education and infrastructure. Else leave it to the NGO’s for few years and the young minds will bring a change for sure.And finally , government schools are not upto the mark and there is no reason to hide this.

A day to forget – Kumbakonam fire accident

July 16th 2004 , a heart breaking fire accident happened in a school at Kumbakonam,TamilNadu. The fire took around 90 plus childrens lives and their parents hopes/dreams. We cannot blame anyone except the educational departmetn for not considering about the thatched roofs for the class rooms and other building inside the school. Anyways after this incident strict rules were followed and most of the schools are asked to replace the thatched roofs with alternatives.

Same situation is now in the quality of education in the Government schools, do the government need any historical accident/incident to happen for taking some serious steps on improving the quality of education ? . Good infrastructure will keep the children in a comfortable place, but without quality in education they are going to get nothing except the comfortable place and a mid day meals with two eggs per week.

Just building a memorial in Palakarai,Kumbakonam with 14000 sq for a cost estimate of 60 lakhs will not be a solution for his accident. Apart from this lets improve all the schools by providing state of the art facilities with quality in infrastructure and Education.  Let’s put the 90 plus children’s soul in peace by improving the lives of the other children’s with the Equality in Quality Education.

back to school …joining in 1st standard…!

Atlast I got the Demo Cd’s of ABL method. ABL is a new teaching method followed in all the public (govt.) schools of Tamil Nadu. I was dying to get the details and demo cd of ABL for past 10 months. Thanks to the Headmastar of the school for getting me the demo cd’s. I have to see all the cd’s and understand about the ABL method. Hope this would be a interesting one to check with all the cd’s.

This week I am flooded with some other jobs ( preparing financial report, meeting auditor , and a component delivery in office etc.,). Hope fully I will start watching it by next week. So I will be joining in 1st standard by next week. Interesting …..!

As a part Blossom (a NGO working for towards better society) also supported few schools by providing the paintings needed for ABL method. Blossom also have plans to provide the painting in more public schools of Tamilnadu. So this is our responsibility to know more about ABL method .As a good part I met a person, who can provide me the set of ABL method cards. Hope this should be helpful for us to learn more about ABL.

I always wish to go back to my child hood …! But now got chance to go back to my school days by learning from 1st to 5th standard subjects. Is there any easy way like this to go back to my childhood days again ?? ???????? 🙂

Note :- ABL – Activity Based Learning , introduced by a NGO few years back and accepted by the Andra government and was implemented in few schools. Few years back Taminadu government also considered this system and implemented partially in few govt schools and last year in all the public schools this was implemented. This system was implemented for 1st to 5th standard kids. ABL is for primary education and ALM – Active Learning Method is for upper primary level ( 6th to 9th standard). ALM is in the research phase and will be implemented by next year.

The most awaited 12 resutls were announced. This year the pass percentage has been increased when compared to last few years. The total pass percentage of tamil nadu students were 84.4 % and last year it was 81%. The real good news is , the results of the govt. schools in chennai. The pass percentage in chennai corp schools is 81%.And this year we can able to see some good marks among the govt school students. It’s a good sign that we can see some good marks from govt schools.

Ps:- source from The Hindu and Dinamalar news papers dated 10 th May 08.

Overall view is , 2008 is a good year to all 12th students. And congrats to the govt. schools in chennai for their improvement in results.Have to check with the status of the other government schools of Tamil nadu. This I accept as a fair improvement on the govt. schools and not a good or better improvement.

the thing is we should not compare the govt. schools with the other govt. schools. It should be compared with the other private schools. So that they can improve lot. Still a long way to go. Is this ok to get 161 students to get more than 1000 among 12000 govt school children in chennai ? Is this fair enough ?. Its just around 2 percent of the total students. What about the status of the other govt schools in tamil nadu. The results will be more worst than these schools. The difference between the public and private schools very big.When we are going to bridge this gap ?

Just passing the exams doesn’t matters. What about the skills they have when they complete 12th. The skills among the rural students are very less and incomparable with the city and town side school students.India is growing rapidly in all the departments. But if the imbalance in the quality of education continues, the growth will be stopped abruptly.

A little concentration from government will bring big changes in the rural education. Let’s bring a revolution in rural education. Let them equally compete with the city students. Lets give them the liberty of getting the so called quality education . At present govt schools are not chosen by students or parents. They are there because they have no option. Only the economic status takes decision instead of them.

On behalf of Blossom , I wish to to invite more NGO’s to join hands. Only NGO’s can do this. It’s no use in depending on a government. Let’s work together and govt. may join us later. It’s our social responsibility. We need the co-operation from govt school teachers and HM’s. Wish all out dreams come true. Lets give world class public schools for our next generation.Let’s also see more NRI students in govt schools. 🙂

Revolutions are not born/made ..they are brought. So Let’s bring it…!
