From this year, Kannada is compulsory in all schools

Kannada Compulsory

  • Starting this academic year, students will be taught Kannada in all schools in the State, including private, linguistic minority and Central board schools. Minister for Primary and Secondary Education Tanveer Sait, who made the announcement on Thursday, said children would start learning the subject from class one.
  • A circular to this effect was issued on May 29. Stringent action, including withdrawal of the no-objection certificate issued by the Education Department, would be initiated in case of non-compliance, Mr. Sait said.
  • Textbooks for the subject are ready and 99.89% of printing has been completed. Digitised versions of Kannada textbooks will be made available online.
  • On Kannada-medium schools in border areas and in other States, he said the department was studying two reports on protecting Kannada, submitted by activist Vatal Nagaraj and writer Baragur Ramachandrappa.
  • “There are two Kannada-medium high schools in neighbouring Goa. We have written to the Goa government with an offer to give question papers and evaluate the answer sheets. We are awaiting a response,” he said.

Improving quality

  • The District Institutes of Education and Training, which have tied up with the Regional Institute of Education, have trained 5,400 teachers with the aim of improving the quality of English teaching in government schools.
  • These teachers, who are now master trainers, will be posted to the 4,100 clusters where they will train other teachers, the Minister said.
