CHENNAI: The Madras High Court on Wednesday issued notice to the state Director of Matriculation Schools on a petition by Parents Union for Students Educational Rights (PUSER), seeking removal of abolished nomenclatures such as Matriculation, Oriental and Anglo Indian for private schools.

PUSER submitted that four streams of school education -- State Board, Matriculation, Oriental and Anglo-Indian -- were in existence before the academic year 2011-12, when the Uniform System of School Education came into force.

At present, from Standard I to Class X in all the schools in the state the system was being implemented and all were acting under the common Board.

When the object of the enactment was to abolish different streams and syllabus in order to reach the common stream of education by removing disparities, it is just and necessary to remove the old nomenclature as represented in the identities such as name boards and all visible communications of the private schools such as Matriculation, Oriental, Anglo-Indian, the petitioner submitted.
