TN SCHOOL VISIT : Goverment Higher Secondary School, Akkur, Nagappattinam District, Tamil Nadu

Dear All,
 
We (I and K Senthil kumar) visited Government Higher Secondary School, Akkur on 31st July 2009. This school has 980 students from 6th to 12th standard.
 
 – There are 162 PUC Students (11th 180, 12th 182 students) and 6 groups available for PUC students
    (Maths, History, Bio-Chemistry, Computer Science, Economics and EDA EMR group)
 
EDA EMR – Electric Domestic Appliances and Electric Motor Repairing and Rewinding course
–  The special group is called EDA EMR – Electric Domestic Appliances and Electric Motor Repairing and Rewinding course.
 
–  Govt provided equipments from Hair dryer to Washing machine to set up LAB, which is worth of Rs. 2 lakh. These equipments are
    required for this course. However, govt NOT provided any teacher with right skills to continue this group.
 
–  Currently, there are 26 students in 11th and 25 students in 12th standard in this group
 
–  Headmaster (HM) found two volunteers with B.E and Diplomo qualification.
 
–  They are teaching since 2005 for very very less salary. HM told me that he is able to give only Rs. 1200 to Rs. 1500 per month
    through PTA program.
 
– HM told me that they have good teaching skills and he CAN NOT continue this group without BOTH teachers.
 
– I got very positive feedback from few students from the same group.
 
– The interesting news is that 7 STUDENTS are studying B.E from this group. This is one of the highest record from this school.
 
– HM asked me, if we could arrange salary for both teachers along with their contribution.
