Schools to be penalised if they fail to implement Kannada phase-wise

  • Students from other States who enrol in schools in Karnataka between classes two and eight will have to study class one syllabus of Kannada.
  • This has been designed to ensure smooth transition for students. This academic year, schools have to compulsorily start teaching Kannada in class one and ensure that it is implemented phase-wise and by the 2026-27 academic year, it should be taught in all classes from one to 10.
  • Out-of-State students will subsequently have to study syllabus of the next standards. For example, if they join class four, they have to study first standard syllabus. In fifth standard, they have to study second standard Kannada textbook and so on.
  • However, those who come from other States and enrol in classes 9 or 10 in Karnataka, will have to study syllabus prescribed by the Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board.
  • The Department of Primary and Secondary Education has laid down the rules for implementation of the Kannada Language Learning Act, 2015.
  • While government schools from classes one to four should follow the Nali Kali textbooks for Kannada, private schools should follow the Kali Nali textbooks. From class five onwards, Kannada needs to be taught as the first or the second language.
  • If any school is found not teaching Kannada, then the education officials will conduct a surprise inspection and initiate action as per the Karnataka Education Act 1983.
