The Jayalalithaa effect: Students left without books

Chennai:  With the former and current Chief Ministers of Tamil Nadu at war, it is the students of the state who are bearing the brunt. Most schools in Tamil Nadu are reopening today after summer vacation, but most students will have to go to school without text books for at least three weeks.

The Jayalalithaa government has put on hold the uniform syllabus introduced by the previous DMK regime, saying, it is not of good quality.

Yesterday, the Supreme Court formed an expert committee to examine the controversial curriculum. The state government now says schools will engage children in activity based learning and a bridge course without text books till the court sorts out the issue in three weeks.
