With know-how, college students may be taught the content material in any language with out having to be taught the language. Until Tamil as a medium of studying was fostered in any respect ranges of research, the present bilingual strategy of Tamil and English should proceed, he stated.
There was no want for centralised evaluation in Classes III, V and VIII as studying and evaluation was restricted to school rooms and the associated actions embody simply two gamers — college students and academics. The governments should as a substitute deal with investing on academics’ competence and expertise.
Human useful resource
