Permanent recognition sought for matriculation schools

By Our Staff Reporter

ERODE, MAY 25. The Directorate of Matriculation Schools should grant permanent recognition to the matriculation schools instead of renewing it every year, the State president of the Association of Management and Principals of Matriculation Schools in Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry, C. Kumarasamy, said today.

Mr. Kumarasamy, who is also the Correspondent of the Navarasam Matric HSS, Palliyuthu, Erode district, said various resolutions were passed at the Executive Committee meeting of the association held on May 23 at Madurai T.V.S. Lakshmi Matric HSS.

Through a resolution, the association had taken exception to the tendency of the Directorate of Matriculation Schools, in renewing the recognition for just one year without going into the relevant details submitted by the institutions, such as building licence and stability certificate.

The meeting wanted the renewal to be given for a period stated in the building licence and stability certificate, since applying for renewal every year posed some difficulties besides wasting man hours.

The association expressed its displeasure at the discrepancies in the Plus Two examination question papers as well as in the Tamil Nadu Professional Colleges Entrance Examination question papers. It said that the Board of Studies of Plus Two examination, the Directorate of Government Examination and Anna University should exercise utmost care to ensure preparation of question papers without any anomalies, since it would have a great impact on the career prospects of students.

Mr. Kumarasamy also added that the association strongly condemned "the attitude of Anna University in having been indifferent to an examination which decides the destiny of lakhs of students".

The Association thanked the Chief Minister for resuming the free bus pass system to all students including those from matriculation schools. The meeting appealed to the Chief Minister to reduce the School Vehicle tax, which was increased last year.

The meeting also appealed to the Directorate of Matriculation Schools to issue the updated list of recognised matriculation schools.
