Uniform Education and Education Revolution in Tamil NaduEducation can be a powerful tool for reducing poverty and unemployment and achieving sustained human development. However, when we compare our country’s education with other developed/developing countries, the education in our country is not suitable for the current situation/practical life. All over the world, governments are strictly following the procedure of generating libraries along with schools, colleges, etc., because the emperor Napoleon said, “Build up libraries; otherwise we would build up prisons.
Generally al, all the countries understand the importance of higher education. 1980s American President Ronald Reagan took several steps to improve higher education. In a survey, among the ten world’s best universities, nine universities are situated in America. Most of the countries are including basic education as a human right. In India, education quality incorporates schools, and private institutions have huge differences. For instance, the education system in institutions like IIM and IIT differs from other institutions. In other institutes, IIM and IIT institute students have future benefits like employment, salary, etc. The syllabus difference between Tamilnadu and Kerala. We can give much more examples to prove equality in our education system.
According to India’s human resource development department report, only 77% of the students are pursuing higher secondary studies. 61.6% of the students stop their studies in between higher secondary. The total number ber of schools and colleges has increased slightly compared to previous years, but the quality of education is falling. Even though the students are well educated, they can’t get a job because of the nonpractical syllabus in many educational institutions. Therefore, it is time to introduce the “education revolution” through uniform education.

Only the richest students can get quality education in public and private schools. Tamil Nadu’s Government will introduce a uniform education system to eliminate equality in education. In the 1960s, the Gothari Commission insisted that the Government of India present consistent education in every state, and the committee stressed increasing the allocation of finance to education. With that committee’s recommendations, the Government of India introduced “Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan.” But the result is not up to the level.
The Government of Tamilnadu comes forward to introduce uniform education with the recommendation of the Muthu Kumaran committee. Consistent education will reduce the burden on school children by reducing the numberber of books and nolso. It will make a full stop to the indirect collection of amounts from the children using textbooks. On one side, it is a good thing, but on the other side, the quality of government schools is not up to the mark of private schools. Uniform education’s other important content is building nearby schools for children. But the Government of Tamil Nadu doesn’t give any matters regarding the nearest school systems. The Government of Tamil Nadu also failed to include the medium of instruction as Tamil. Because Mr. Muthukumaran’s committee strongly stressed providing education in the mother tongue. The education minister also failed to include the significant content of uniform education in appointing a sufficient number of teachers for each child in the Government Schools.
From the point of view of us and the point of view of experts, we wish to suggest. We expect some recommendations from the Tamil Nadu education minister to develop the rural children’s education rate.
2. In most rural schools, the teacher-student ratio is too low (5 classes: 2 teachers). Merely introducing a common syllabus, we can’t expect uniform education development in all schools. The State Government should come forward to allocate more finance to education development.
3. Most politicians, like PMK leader Ramadoss, expect the State Government to provide LKG & UKG education to all the rural students. Because all the urban area students are going in the Ist standard after completing these courses, most rural students are joined without these courses. So far, four committees have been arranged to analyze Indians’ education positions. All these committees recommend one thing severally: “nearby schools with mother tongue common schools.”
4. A child should get an education without going long distances, so the Government should construct more schools in rural areas. So the Government didn’t explain about the nearby school’s construction.
5. Government school teachers are getting more salaries than private school teachers. But the pass percentage is too lower than the private schools. This is because the Government didn’t pay more attention to praising the teachers and punishing them when they were misleading.
6. Chennai Municipality receives Rs. 70 crores as an annual education tax. As per the April 2009 situation, the idle amount is Rs. 120 crores. The Chennai municipality can improve the 250 corporate schools to the star category with this amount. Therefore, the Government should concentrate on spending the collected amount towards school education development.
7. Even though the Government schools provide free lunch, no fees, free uniforms, and free textbooks, most low-class people are interested in getting an appointment from the private schools. The Government should pay attention to these actions. It should find the reason.
8. Most rural students have stopped their education between (nearly 70% of the students stop their education within 10th STD) classes. The reason is poverty and the school’s infrastructure education plan, test formation, and job opportunities from education. The Government should try to change the education system of our state. Every student should be assured of job opportunities.
9. According to the latest report from 1000 students, only 50-60 students can get jobs. It arises due to nonjob relevance syllabus and lack of library facilities in our schools. So the Government should increase the library facilities in each & every school.
The Uniform education system may create an education revolution in Tamil Nadu, and it will scatter over all the states. The Government will also pay keen attention to our country’s education system. We hope the uniform education syllabus will reduce the imbalance between rural students’ knowledge and urban students’ knowledge. It is time to create an education revolution in our country.
We believe our state is its first footstep in the education revolution. In uniform education, the common syllabus is one of the footsteps. Still, many footsteps are informed of us. We must cross them to get a quality education and provide it to our state students. The Government may do, and God will help them.
