School Syllabus

It was recently announced that a decision on introducing a standardized School syllabus throughout Tamil Nadu would be taken after the Muthukumaran Committee report was complete. The main agenda of current education meetings is to explore ways to improve the prospects of State students in higher secondary examinations at the exam levels of 'SSLC' and 'Plus Two' and to motivate teachers (with a record of low pass percentage) to improve their teaching results.

It was further announced that the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) has agreed to assist schools to purchase furniture, construct compound walls and develop the necessary infrastructure. In order to facilitate the admission of students into premier Institutes, it was agreed that local training Institutes would hereafter shift their focus on preparing students for such exams as the Joint Entrance Exam (JEE).
