Bengaluru, Oct 24, 2017 : The Managements of Independent CBSE Schools Association is planning to move the court over the order of the government that all schools in the state should teach Kannada as either a first or a second language.
The managements have said they have no problem teaching Kannada as one of the languages. But schools will find it difficult if it is made mandatory as a first or a second language.
M Srinivasan, president of the Association, said it would not be possible to make teaching of Kannada as first or second language mandatory. "We will first write to the government and hold discussions with them. We will approach the court, if we don’t get a remedy," he told DH.
Board exams are conducted for classes 9 and 10. It will not be possible to conduct the board exams if Kannada is taught as a first or second language. Srinivasan said the Association would write to the secondary education board in this regard.
