Speaking to reporters after presiding over the first 12-member district-wide meeting organized to elicit proposals, Judge Murugesan said the government’s education policy would lead to a desirable transformation of the teaching, learning and testing systems, bringing them on a par with global standards. It will be a guiding light in the field of education in Tamil Nadu for the next ten years.

From revamping the curriculum based on the latest scientific developments and needs to modernizing teaching practices, the committee will take into account all the constructive and positive aspects brought up by stakeholders. Transferring quality education to the physically challenged and transgender people would be scientifically framed.

The committee takes into account the periodic training system for teachers on modern teaching methods using scientific tools. The commission will encourage the participation of more students in the district level meetings that will be organized in seven other centers, including Madurai where the meeting will take place on Wednesday.

“The main objective of this panel is to ensure high-quality education for all sectors of society without any hindrance so that students can break through any competitive examination, including Civil Service Examinations, Common Entrance Examination (NEET) and Joint Entrance Examination. The commission intends to present its report in the within a year.

He admitted that depression largely prevalent among students and slow parental care in the mechanical world had collectively caused a decline in discipline among the younger generation, which was cause for concern. “Parents and teachers are and should be the best advisors to students,” Judge Murugesan noted, adding that due attention will be given to addressing the growing “drop out” problem.

When asked whether the commission would recommend an increase in the allocation of funds in the state budget, he said that it would certainly be discussed and recommended. He said the commission would take the “positive features” of the national education policy and include them in the state education policy.

Students, teachers, academics and representatives of volunteer organizations from Tirunelveli, Tenkasi, Thothukudi and Kanyakumari districts participated in the meeting to register their suggestions in the presence of Jama Vishnu and Company Commissioner V. Sivakrishnamurthy.

At the beginning of the suggestions session, student M. Arunachala Vadivu from Government Senior Secondary School, Vadakku Chezhiyanallur near Maanur, wanted to get male and female physical education teachers in all Senior Secondary Schools and at least two field trips to enrich their knowledge in some areas.

Sankara Raman of Amar Seva Sangam, Aayikudi, which serves the cause and education of the physically challenged, said school buildings, classrooms, toilets and path to restrooms should be designed in such a way that they are accessible. Teaching tools to teach visually impaired and hearing impaired students must be renewed.

Mr. Sankara Raman suggested that “while hearing impaired students can be taught effectively using a larger number of visuals, visually impaired students can be provided with audio materials besides Braille books”.

Venith, a teacher and father of a mentally retarded child, appealed to the committee to recommend the start of private schools exclusively for mentally handicapped children.

Professor Palamrugan from TDMNS College, Kalikulam said that 45 minutes per day should be allotted in all colleges to prepare students for competitive exams while some participants wanted this session to start from class 9 itself.

Most of the participants wanted the committee to ensure that “ethical sessions” were conducted in schools at least once a week to prepare the younger generation with discipline, a diminishing quality among students.
