In the 60s and 70s only Madras University and Annamalai University existed But now the situation has changed, there are more than 50 colleges in each district. Dravidian model government is the only development that has happened in education.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister said that during the time when he studied, girls did not go to schools at all, but now a large number of girls are studying in colleges, this is the Dravidian model government…The time when only the upper castes could study has changed and now everyone can study. Everyone is equal. This is the Dravidian model.
Bilingual policy is very important in Tamil Nadu. Bilingual policy of Tamil and English is sufficient for Tamil Nadu. Tamil language is sufficient for speaking in Tamil Nadu and English is sufficient for speaking globally.Other languages are not required so Jeppiaar University should follow bilingual policy…
The new education policy says that public examination should be conducted for class 5th, class 8th and class 10th then the number of students studying will be affected so there is no need for such a policy.Jeppiaar , who grew up following the Dravidian model.
