NEP language fiasco

Recommended Posts

TN struck gold with its 2 language policy of Tamil and English in the 60's itself. Thank you C.N Annadurai. Tamil for us and English with rest of the world.

 

TN should stick with its 2 language policy. We don't need a 3rd language. Asking kids to learn 3 languages is a goddamn waste of time and puts unnecessary pressure on young kids thereby resulting in dropouts. Besides there are many more crucial life skills to be learnt instead of an unnecessary 3rd language.

 

Another policy that rest of the indian states to emulate.

True dat. TN is such a success story that in delhi NCR, after the bengalis, it's the tamils - even more than biharis - who dominate the domestic bai scene. Come to railway tracks crossing Lajpat Nagar II and observe the success story in action, masses of slummy tamils living and shitting in open.

Good 2nd step! IIRC children need to learn at least 6 years in their MTs to maximize the benefits, so that is good. 

 

Last year the Centre started the process of having textbooks, including higher ed textbooks IIRC, translated into Indian languages.  

 

We will see what step 3 of this process is!

Such a poor, bitter post. As if the rest of India is so highly educated  and no other community lives in slums . The 2 language policy is the way forward for India no matter what anyone thinks

Also people talking about Kannada medium, Tamil medium schools in bangalore need to remember that these schools offered very poor quality education. Literally anyone who understood  the advantage of instruction in english would bend over backwards to put their kids in English medium convent schools like a josephs, cottons, FAPS, Baldwin's and their ilk(oldest schools in blore) until the 80's and subsequently the various other icse, CBSe and international schools where english is pretty much the dominant language spoken among students. How do you think this city has such a high number of speakers of english at least as a second language ?

 

English as a first language and the state language/Hindi as the second language as per preference . Go ahead with this idea and it will only increase the gap between the English speaking elite and those who learn in their mother tongues. Of course, it will be the elite that would actually support this as it would simply continue to give them a privileged status while damning the regional language speakers with no chance of upward social mobility
