CBSE Starts Gaining Edge in Tamil Nadu

Feb 21, 2014 17:51 IST

    In 2013, near about 80 new CBSE schools were added more in state Tamil Nadu. It has been observed that though parents consider state syllabus to be easier in terms of scoring more marks to secure admission seats in engineering colleges, yet the syllabus and teaching methodology formulated by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is more in demand among the same parents who wish to create strong base for their children.

    CBSE director D T S Rao stated that number of CBSE schools is increasing with each year in many states of India and a significant growth has been noticed in Tamil Nadu alone with city Chennai having more than 140 new CBSE schools, which were added in the previous year to date.

    If we reckon about the past CBSE affiliated schools in the city, the 2 Kendriya Vidyalayas in Tambaram were the only schools who usually catered the children of defence and central government employees mostly. Now, Tambaram region also have more than 10 CBSE schools, at present.

    The reason for parents getting inclined towards CBSE schools may range from academic freedom to convenient transfer options as well as CBSE’s quality oriented, innovative teaching methods.

    A parent of Class 1 from a popular school in Chetpet said that most national competitive exams have questions coming from the syllabus of CBSE and majority of schools under the board train children for JEE.

    Existing matriculation schools have begun to open CBSE branches to take advantage of the benefits offered by a CBSE school, said school correspondent K Vasudevan.

    After the common syllabus was introduced, the parents started to shift their children in matriculation to the CBSE School from the state board.
