104th Convocation of city-based Queen Mary’s College;Degree  Not A Mere Honour, But Basic Right said Tamil Nadu Chief Minister

 Tamil Nadu chief minister M K Stalin on Tuesday said educational qualification was not a mere honour for an individual but a basic right. Addressing the 104th Convocation of city-based Queen Mary’s College for women, the chief minister also exhorted the passing out graduates to attain maximum heights using one’s qualification.

He recalled the various efforts towards women empowerment in Tamil Nadu over the decades and said “we have crossed many roadblocks in the name of religion and culture,” and have ended issues like child marriage and made education primary for women.

“That is why I request the first generation graduates in you to teach your subsequent generations. The degree behind your name is not a mere honour but it is your basic right,” the Chief Minister said.

He listed out his government’s various pro-women initiatives, including free bus travel for them, saying it was aimed at ensuring their economic self-reliance.

Tamil Nadu’s department of school education have recently partnered with the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras to improve the digital learning experience of school students by improvising and updating the existing digital learning platform to an assessment-focused learning management system.
