Tamilnadu state open schooling has been established under Tamilnadu Government to provide quality education to all. The open school will actively engage itself to promote the educational, social, and economic upliftment and general welfare of the people of India. The school will also provide education to an economically backward section of people of India by conducting Open Schooling and Distance Education programs.
Tamilnadu state open school will begin upon a quality education system that promotes creative thinking and innovations. Excellence is a mind-set and we wish to realize it in our students. The Open learning system has been initiated in Tamilnadu open school to expand opportunities for education as an instrument of democratizing education and to make it a lifelong process. The flexibilities and innovations of the Open Learning System are particularly fit to the diverse requirements of the citizens of our country, including those who had joined the vocational Stream.
In the present scenario of ruthless competition, the last step of improvement has now become crucial. Our life must be combined with action. Our stern and sincere efforts can make a big difference. I believe that a teacher is capable of planting the student’s life. The demand for quality education is growing, and presently it is often being met by Institutions outside India. It is evident from the fact that during the year 2009 itself, more than 70,000 students went to the United States for higher education, spending more than $4 billion annually. We have launched Certificate / Diploma / PG. Diploma Courses, Diploma Engineering Courses, and Management Courses through Open and Distance Learning Mode.
While the round – the admission policy with examination schedules conveniently arranged on weekends and the effective continuous assessment provision have sufficiently addressed the issue of quantity in the form of increasing higher education access, the Tamilnadu state open schooling has been harnessing the advancement in ICT to continuously improve quality.
