ERODE: The Tribal Peoples Association of Tamil Nadu has requested the state government to build mainstream primary schools in the villages of Agnibavi, Thottakombai and Vilangombai in Anthiyur taluk in Erode. After the closure of the NCLP schools, which operated under the supervision of the Ministry of Labor and Employment in Agnibavi, Thottakombai and VIlangombai, 75 students in these three villages are facing problems in their education.

While the 25 students from Agnibavi have returned to work in sugar cane plantations or graze cattle, the children from Thottakombai and Vilangombai have to walk more than 5 km to reach the nearest schools in their respective areas. If a regular primary school is built in the area, these children will be able to return to school. The Tribal Welfare Department should take steps to build primary schools in these three villages without delay.

Radhakrishnan, project manager of Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan, said: “After the closure of NCLP schools, steps were taken to enroll children studying there in alternative schools. However, they have expressed the need for primary schools in their own villages and we will take this into account.

An Erode Tribal Welfare Department official said, “Steps are being taken to establish primary schools in Thottakombai and Vlankombai villages and a study has been commissioned to build a primary school in Agnibavi.
