School children will now be taught in local dialects. Chhattisgarh has decided to introduce local dialects as the medium of instruction in State-run primary schools from the next academic session. This will help children particularly from the tribal belt to understand the school curriculum better.
Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel said students will be taught in Gondi, Halbi, Bhatri, Sargujia, Korwa, Pando, Kudukh, Kamari among others.
“In the ‘Right to Education Act 2009, there was a provision to teach children in their mother tongue. But the previous government has not taken any initiative in this direction. We have decided now that every attempt in this regard will be made,” Baghel said.
Baghel added that government had also directed all state schools to introduce discussions on the Constitution of India.
Chhattisgarh government had released a related circular on Friday. It has instructed schools to hold such discussions after morning prayers every Monday.
“The creator of constitution Dr BR Ambedkar had said that it bothers him if India will be able to maintain its independence or will again lose it?. If political parties place their creed above the country, then our freedom will once again be in danger and possibly it will end forever’. We all must counter any such possible event with full determination,” Bhagel said in his speech.
