Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin launched the Ennum Ezhuthum scheme in June 2022. The objective of this scheme is to achieve basic literacy and to ensure numeracy.

  • The scheme has been launched at a program at Azhinjivakkam Panchayat Union Middle School, Tiruvallur.

  • This scheme has been launched to bridge the learning gap among students below 8 years of age as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Under the programme, the education department will distribute workbooks to students of classes 1 to 3 to assess and understand the learning gap.

  • Under this initiative children will be trained in three subjects: Tamil, English and Mathematics.

  • Under the programme, teachers were advised to opt for interactive teaching methods and encouraged students to read newspapers and books in the school library.

  • Why was this scheme launched?

  • The scheme was launched due to the closure of schools in the state of Tamil Nadu for more than 19 months during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, this learning gap cannot be bridged by regular classes alone. Thus, this scheme has been started to help each child individually.
