DH News Service Bangalore:
Teaching of English as a subject has been made mandatory from Class I in all Kannada medium schools. While all English medium schools will be required to teach Kannada as a compulsory subject from Class I, in linguistic minorities’ schools Kannada will be a compulsory subject from Class III.
 

Come June 2007 and all primary schools affiliated to the State authorities, will have to follow the ‘Tribhasha Sutra’ (three-language formula).

The Cabinet on Saturday approved the three-pronged policy. Teaching of English as a subject has been made mandatory from Class I in all Kannada medium schools. While all English medium schools will be required to teach Kannada as a compulsory subject from Class I, in linguistic minorities’ schools Kannada will be a compulsory subject from Class III.

Kannada was an optional subject for Class III in linguistic minorities’ schools till now.

Speaking to reporters here, Primary and Secondary Education Minister Basavaraj Horatti said all government and private primary schools would follow the three-language policy from the next academic year.

Clarifying the government’s stand on the derecognition of erring Kannada medium schools which were caught teaching in English, he said: “The block education officers and deputy directors of public instruction (DDPIs) have been instructed to inquire and report before November 30 about the involvement of any officer in flouting the Kannada policy in these schools.”
