23 Oct : The proposed uniform education system for a common syllabus in the state would be implemented only after proper discussions with educationists and public, Minister for Higher Education K Ponmudi said in Dharmapuri on Wednesday.
The government had taken a policy decision to introduce ‘Samacheer Kalvi’ (uniform education system) from classes one to six from next academic year (2010-11) after integrating all boards (state, matriculation, oriental and Anglo-Indian) on a trial basis, he said declaring open newly constructed class rooms and laboratories of the Government Arts College in Dharmapuri.
Discussions would be held with educationists and public before finalising syllabus under the new system. “No schemes would be a success unless it got public support”, he said.
The scheme, if found to be a success, would be extended gradually up to SSLC (std XI) level, he said.
As per a recent study, Tamil Nadu topped in the country in moulding engineering graduates with about 1.60 lakh youths successfully completing engineering courses annually, he said.
