The Tamil Nadu government will be announcing more than 40 reforms on Tuesday and one of them could be the government making it mandatory for all the state government employees to admit their children only to government-run schools.
A government source told The New Indian Express said that one of the reforms is that government employees including all staff of government schools will have to enrol their children compulsorily to government schools, but the final decision will only be made after holding discussions with the Chief Minister.
Education activist Prince Gajendra Babu said that the government needs to make sure that the government schools have enough teachers working in all these government schools.
Another major reform is that school teachers working in government schools will not be allowed to work for more than five years in one school. An official from the school education department told TNIE that teachers working in the same school for too long are prone to have prejudices towards students who live in the locality which might affect the teaching process.
The Tamil Nadu government earlier introduced board examinations for Class XI in the academic year 2017-2018 and also issued a consolidated mark sheets abased on marks in Class XI and XII for students passing out in 2019, reported The Hindu.
