The Madras High Court has directed the Puducherry government to consider a plea for establishment of a separate board for school education, particularly for classes 10 and 12, in the union territory.
The first bench of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice PD Audikesavalu said “In the light of increasing population and the number of school-going children, it may be in the best interest of the students if a board or individual boards for primary and secondary education or even higher education were constituted.
However, that is a decision exclusively within the domain of the executive.” The bench permitted the petitioner to send a representation afresh to the education secretary in Puducherry.
The secretary, it said, will consider the representation in appropriate perspective, particularly considering the many schools which have mushroomed in Puducherry itself and the need for providing a distinct curriculum or even process for students there delinked from what is followed in the neighbouring state of Tamil Nadu.
