Plan to upgrade schools in Tirupur

Staff Reporter

More teachers will be appointed

TIRUPUR A: proposal to upgrade seven middle schools into high schools and four high schools to higher secondary school in Tirupur will be sent to the Government, said P.A. Naresh, Chief Educational Officer (CEO), Coimbatore district.

Speaking at a consultative meeting at Tirupur on Monday with head masters and parent teacher association representatives of all schools here, he said, there would be no bar on additional sections in parallel English medium classes under self-supporting mode in Municipal and Government schools.

Transparent accounts

"`If the parent teachers associations are able to run the classes by appointing adequate teachers, they can start admitting students from next week itself and the Government will give necessary approvals. But, the accounts should be maintained in a transparent manner.'' the CEO said. Mr. Naresh said special attention would be given to creating infrastructure and posting teachers at the schools. Proposals to upgrade Vijayapuram, Eduvampalayam and Pandiyan Nagar middle schools as HSSs and to open a girls HSS at Perumanallur would be sent to the Government. There would also be proposals to upgrade Kumar Nagar, New Ramachandrapuram, Weavers Colony, Mudalipalayam, Karuppakavundanpalayam, Vavipalayam and Chokkanur middle schools as high schools.

Tirupur MLA, C. Sivasamy said that all the schools in Tirupur had space constraints and shortage of teachers, but a problem was that more parents wanted their children to be admitted to the Government schools in the English medium at Standard XI. "Most of the workers could not afford to pay the high fee and donation" At present, all the Government and Municipal schools had only one section in English medium class. "The Government should allow the Government schools to have more sections in English medium, otherwise it should instruct the private school managements to provide 50 per cent seats to poor students at a minimum fee,'' Mr. Sivasamy said. The Municipal Chairman, M.N. Palanisamy, said the urban body had a reserve of Rs. 3 crores of educational fund.
