Tamil schools in Kuala Lumpur have recorded better Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) results last year, Deputy Education Minister P. Kamalanathan said.
Malaysia Nanban reported that 45 students scored straight As last year compared to 34 in 2013.
The number of students obtaining B and C grades also went up from 55 per cent to 58 per cent.
Collectively, the schools improved by 2.21 per cent in 2014. SJK (T) Ladang Edinburgh, SJK (T) Sentul, SJK (T) Segambut, and SJK (T) St. Joseph were identified as the best performing Tamil schools in the capital.
Kamalanathan held discussions on Friday with Federal Territory Education Department director Datin Nawal Salleh about an educational action plan for Tamil schools and he was confident that the 15 Tamil schools in Kuala Lumpur would continue getting assistance and resources from the department.
