Kannada Mandatory For Karnataka Schools But Provisions Not Made

By Malavikka

All schools in Karnataka will now have to teach Kannada mandatory for students regardless of their board. This includes the CBSE and ICSE systems too.

Also singing the State anthem 'Nada Geethe' is also likely to be made compulsory in schools statewide. 'Sources in the Education Department said rules state that children should sing the Nada Geethe too, but these are being ignored by private schools and those affiliated to Central boards,' reported an English daily.

Confirming the speculation, in a series of tweets, which have also been retweeted by the Karnataka Education Minister Tanveer Sait, it has been stated that schools which fail to implement teaching Kannada as a subject will face disaffiliation.

Kannada Mandatory For Karnataka Schools

The government is yet to finalise on the pattern for the State anthem; there are five patterns and Department of Kannada and Culture, Karnataka State Government is yet to decide on the best one to ensure that the anthem is sung without mistakes and none is repeated.

Even though Primary education minister Tanveer Sait said that starting August, Kannada will be mandatory for students from class 1 in all schools including ICSE and CBSE boards, there has been no aid in this regard in terms of study materials.

There is no prescribed syllabus or textbooks given for school to start teaching Kannada. Has the government not thought of the arrangements that need to be made for the facilities to be in place before an order is passed?
