Ennum Ezhuthum


The Ennum Ezhuthum Mission has been envisioned to improve the quality of teaching and learning in primary classes in Tamil Nadu. The goal of the Ennum Ezhuthum mission is to ensure that all students of classes 1,2, and 3 in government schools in Tamil Nadu can read with comprehension and possess basic arithmetic skills by 2025. The mission also aims to tackle the learning gap caused due to school closures during the COVID-19 lockdown. Towards this, under the academic leadership of the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT), the Ennum Ezhuthum Mission shall commence from the academic year 2022-23 across all districts of Tamil Nadu.


By 2025, all primary children in government and aided schools in Tamil Nadu will attain basic literacy & numeracy skills.


Conduct Ennum Ezhuthum in a mission mode from 2022-23.
