Chennai Schools smaller than TN Schools



You should see the number of schools in the NH47 near Salem, there are much bigger in size when compared to our Chennai city schools. There are few more schools getting built.

What I observed?
1) School Buses minimum of 10
2) Large playgrounds
3) Most of the looked like residential schools
4) Infrastructure looks amazing
5) Most of them English medium

It is not just schools some where colleges like the famous Vinayaga mission, Still under expansion.

How did Chennai miss these specification?
I have seen Chennai schools, which are run in size of large homes. How about some colleges, ;)

share your experience of your schooling and college campus.

    We all know that the old school are big, what happened to the relatively new ones. Is it just the cost or the land factor.

    Why can’t the government provide some grants on land for schools?
    Well some one could give away people’s money as TV sets for the poor why not education?

    i agree that tv’s, and now maybe CAS sets should not be the govt subsidy net. but at the sametime govt need not be a santa claus for everything including land which is really expensive.

    Large schools with all the fancy amenities are a good enough business for the private sector to tap. they will come up on the outskirts, but you will have to pay a higher fee, and deal with the distance that you kid will travel each day

    Where will the govt go for land?. There is just no empty land in Madras. There is just too many people. Hope it reverses. One day people will realize it is no point living in Madras and start migrating to second-tier cities.

    Don’t complain about the land. If you are willing to take money and build Special Economy Zones one after another, I don’t see why you cannot build schools.
    My father worked for the government, so I know about all these land and how corrupt politicians and government official have sold all the properties.

    I will give you an example, how many of you have seen a Pillayar Koil in Whites Road. The temple has lots property (Yes even in Mount Road). Well everything has been sold for peanuts.

    Parthasarathy Temple in Triplicane has lots of land, which are occupied by Mr X from ADMK or Mr Y from DMK. Not lagging behind, Mr Z from congress has some too.
