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.
A long awaited common syllabus for Tamilnadu schools (govt, matric, AngloIndian) from 1st to 10th std., has been released by the Tamilnadu government school education department. The syllabus framework for all the subjects has been displayed in the office website for school education department.
Seems that 886 teachers has been applied for writing textbooks for the new syllabus. Among those 306 teachers are interested in writing Tamil textbooks. And government has conducted written test to all those teachers on 30th Oct 2009. Based on the performance in the test the teachers will be selected.
Syllabus for both Tamil and English mediums are given separately in PDF format. A feedback form is also given along with it. Public can give feedback on this new syllabus through the same website and the feedbacks will also be considered in finalizing the framework.
Seems that lots of care has been taken to prepare the new syllabus. I wish to gothrough all the subjects and will give my feedback as early as possible. I consider this as a great initiative by the school education department and hats off tto Mr.Thangam Thennarasu .
I was very eagerly waiting for this to happen. I wish the syllabus would have been framed at par with the existing matriculation syllabus. This is a great initiative. Equality in quality education can be achieved very soon. Best wishes….!
