Assembly nod for separate education board

PUDUCHERRY, October 28, 2003 

By Our Staff Reporter

Pondicherry Oct. 27: The monsoon session of the Assembly was adjourned sine die today after only 23 minutes, but not before the House passed an important Bill, seeking to constitute a separate Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education.

Tabling the Bill, the Education Minister, K. Lakshminarayanan, said it had been a long standing ambition of the Administration to have a separate and independent education board to bring in a uniform and common curriculum for secondary and higher secondary educational institutions, covering all four regions of the Union Territory — Pondicherry, Karaikal, Mahe and Yanam.

At present, educational institutions in these regions are affiliated to the respective Boards of neighbouring States of Tamil Nadu (for Pondicherry and Karaikal), Andhra Pradesh (Yanam) and Kerala (Mahe).

Earlier, Opposition members sought time to go through the Bill. ``It is virtually a bulky document, and without reading its contents, how will it be possible for the members to either speak or express views,'' they asked.

The Leader of the Opposition, R.V. Janakiraman (DMK), said a copy of the Bill should have been distributed to the members a few days ago. A. Anbalagan (AIADMK) said ``we do not know what the Bill contains.'' A.M. Krishnamoorthy (BJP) said sufficient time was necessary for the members to know the chief features and structural aspects of the proposed board.

The Chief Minister, N. Rangasamy, told the House that it was the ambition of Pondicherry to have a separate education board and the step had now been intensified by the Government. He asked the members to patiently listen to the features of the board to be explained by the Education Minister. Then, Mr. Lakshminarayanan, detailing the features, said the Bill would now be sent to the President for his assent, and as soon as it was obtained, the constitution of the board would be completed to enable it to become effective in the next two years.

The board would aim at providing quality education, making students proficient to enable them to face any competition at the national level and evolving a uniform syllabus, he said.

Materials have been sourced from Anglo French Textiles; exclusive bus for girls

For years, the white shirt and grey or blue trousers have been a staple for Puducherry government school students. This year, though, students can look forward to a set of uniforms with new colours.

Boys from class I to class V will have yellow shirts with light green stripes and grey trousers, while girls will get yellow shirts with light green stripes and grey skirts. Boys from class VI to class XII will wear blue shirts with yellow stripes and blue trousers. Girls will be donning blue kurtas with yellow stripes and blue churidhars.

The uniforms have been sourced from Anglo French Textiles, which will be worn by over 1 lakh school students. There are 435 schools under the administrative control of the Directorate of School Education.

The new uniforms, formally launched on Tuesday by Chief Minister N. Rangasamy, are not the only novelty this year as for the first time girls get an exclusive bus.

Routes to be reorganised

Bidding adieu to "co-ed buses,' school buses will run separate services for boys and girls on 55 routes in Puducherry and 15 routes in Karaikal. Each route will have separate buses. "The routes have been reorganised. Earlier, we had certain issues regarding routes. They did not cover all the areas. This time around, we have made sure no area is left out. Buses will ply to and from the town area and rural areas," said E. Vallavan, director, Directorate of School Education.

The Education Department had constituted 10 committees to look into the routes and study how many students used the buses.

"Around 20,000 students use the 55 routes," added Vallavan. Apart from this, a monitoring cell will be finalised soon which will look into aspects like overcrowding, punctuality and maintenance of buses. Qualifications of drivers, conductors and cleaners will also be looked into. "The special buses for girl students will have one female cleaner each. This will be implemented within the next 10 days," said Vallavan.

The school buses are run by private operators in Puducherry with a five-year licence. Buses were undergoing fitness inspection last week to get them on the roads on time for reopening day on June 4.

SFI demands separate board of education

PUDUCHERRY, February 13, 2014


The Puducherry government has been following Tamil Nadu's State board for their education, but the Student Federation of India feel that there is a need for a separate board of education for the Union Territory.

Major divide

Currently, there is a divide, with Puducherry and Karaikal following the Tamil Nadu Board, while Mahe and Yanam follow Kerala and Andhra board respectively.

This creates a major divide during CENTAC admissions, Anand from SFI said.

The other issue is that now, all the text books have to come from Tamil Nadu, which takes sometime to reach the Puducherry and Karaikal students.

These issues, coupled with the problem of college admissions, would all be solved in the Union Territory came up with its own education board, he said.

The SFI have been demanding that the Government set up an education board for the past 10 years or so, but so far no action has been taken.

In addition, despite assurances from the Chief Minister, the Lieutenant Governor and other officials, the school bus service issue has still not been solved.

As a result, there are a number of students who come in from rural areas who are seriously affected, he said.

Plea for separate educational board

PUDUCHERRY, November 23, 2012


The student wing of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) has urged the government to constitute a separate educational board for the Union Territory so as to implement its own agenda on educational related matters.

A resolution to this effect was passed at the consultative meeting of the DMK's Puducherry student wing here on Wednesday. MAS. Subrmanian, organiser of Puducherry DMK unit presided over the meeting.

The resolution said in the absence of self reliant educational board for Puducherry it had been depending upon Tamil Nadu for conducting SSLC, Higher Secondary examinations, teacher recruitment examinations and others. The students had been forced to follow the text books of Tamil Nadu. Though the Chief Minister had already made announcement for the formation of separate board he had not taken concrete steps to implement it. If it was formed it would not only enable the Puducherry people to know about the local history but also to bring reforms in the school education whenever there was a need.

In another resolution, the meet demanded the Pondicherry University to distribute answer scripts to the students in order to clear the possible doubts to them. Stating that the DMK had made the demand several times the University was yet to accept it. If it was not accepted within a month, the student wing would carry out protest against the University.

Stating that many of the private medical and engineering colleges had been charging exorbitant fees from the students irrespective of rich or poor, the Puducherry government had totally failed to take action against them. It was playing the role of silent spectator in this issue.

Hence, it should form a monitoring committee to monitor the colleges collecting unaccounted hefty fees. Similarly, the government was yet to release educational assistance to the students selected under the CENTAC counselling. Since many of them did not pay fees, they were being denied by their respective colleges to write examinations. Hence, the government should release the educational assistance immediately.
