The Tamil Nadu government is ready to launch the Schools of Excellence and Model Schools Scheme on Monday. The program is primarily modeled after schools in Delhi that have enhanced facilities.
Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi, will introduce the program during an event at the public Bharathi Women’s College in the presence of M K Stalin, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
The program reportedly covers up to 26 Schools of Excellence and 15 Model Schools in its initial stages.
The SoE and Model Schools’ official Tamil names are “Thagaisal Palligal” and “Mathiri Palligal.”
Stalin would launch the Moovalur Ramamirtham Ammayar memorial “Puthumai Penn” (Modern Woman) Scheme, which would give girl students who attended public schools from classes six through twelve a monthly financial aid of Rs 1,000 in order to pursue higher education.
Considering Kejriwal and the AAP, TN’s proposal gives them one more chance to portray their government as having a “successful” educational and economic model that other parts of the nation should imitate. The AAP would benefit from supporting its claim that it is no longer a “regional” party.
The plan for infrastructure improvement in state-run schools is a perfect fit for the “Dravidian model” of the DMK leadership, which emphasises social justice and women’s empowerment.
Along with Kejriwal, Stalin visited Delhi government schools in April and given positive reviews on their facilities. He then said that his government would build comparable educational facilities in Tamil Nadu and extended an invitation to Kejriwal for the official opening once construction was complete.
