In recent years, there has been significant advancement in the quality of education, with a strong emphasis on science, technology, and innovative thinking. For Tamil school students, mastering Mathematics and Science subjects is crucial for acquiring a comprehensive qualification. The evolving educational landscape recognizes the pivotal role these subjects play in nurturing critical thinking and preparing students for a technologically driven future.
According to a recent survey conducted by the Ministry of Education, it has been revealed that students from various schools, not limited to Tamil schools, encounter challenges in Mathematics and Science. Expressing concern over these findings, Sivakumar, the Human Resource Minister, remarked that this situation is disheartening.
In the future, the majority of job opportunities in our country will hinge on proficiency in Mathematics and Science. If Indian students are weak in these subjects, their future prospects may become uncertain. It is imperative to prioritize and strengthen education in Mathematics and Science to ensure competitiveness and success in the evolving job landscape.
The minister advises students to identify and understand the in-demand job industries aligning with their career goals. Recognizing the dynamic changes in the job market, he emphasizes the importance of staying informed about entry requirements. Given heightened expectations from employers, the minister encourages students to enhance their skills in Science and Mathematics to better position themselves for future opportunities. He shared this at the special visit of him to SJKT(T) Menglembu. These initiatives contribute to the creation of a dynamic learning environment, where excellence in both subjects is not just encouraged but becomes an inherent part of the educational journey.
“To pave the way for a brighter future, the teachers play a crucial role by fostering encouragement among students. They should organise essential events, workshops, and competitions to motivate students, fostering a learning environment that encourages excellence in both subjects,” he added.
He also said that he will soon get done the request by the school to built for them a hall in the school.
“Established just four years ago, this school currently accommodates 330 students and employs 23 teachers. Recognizing the growing student population, the school management has made a request to me for the construction of a hall. This facility would serve as a convenient gathering space for students, facilitating various activities and sports. Moreover, it will also provide shelter during the rainy seasons, ensuring that students do not get wet while engaging in school-related endeavors,” stated Sivakumar.
