Mind Your Language
The Karnataka Govt. wants 1400 English Medium Schools closed down by end of the year.
This raises several questions.
15 of Kannada-only ministers send their children to English-medium schools. So is it the case of: English Medium Schools: Good for us - Bad for you?
Do the ministers have one policy for themselves and another for the people? Sure enough, it seems so. Leading by example is not something Politicians Know... isn't it?
Well, if its a question of violating undertaking by schools to be Kannada medium - so what exactly was going on for 12 long years? Has anyone punished officials who were sleeping all this time, before discovering the 'lapse' suddenly.
Another thing worth considering is, what is the quality of education imparted in Govt. Schools where these students are supposed to be shifted? The answer lies in the fact that - nobody wants to go to these schools.
By all means local language should be taught - but is this the way to go - by shutting down schools ?
