Prof K Nageshwar: NEP Mother Tongue And Its Impact || (Video)

         The NEP does not mandate that the medium of instruction be switched to the local language. K Nageshwar, journalist and political analyst, says that while the recommendation is not new, it has to be implemented uniformly in government and private schools to have its intended impact.

It all depends on whether the government has the political will to ensure its implementation in private schools. Otherwise private schools will continue to offer English medium, and government schools will have to offer Telugu medium because they will have no option but to implement government policy. As a result, there will be an exodus of students from government to private schools, he says, adding that such selective implementation in government schools will only further marginalize the government schools.

Nagaraju Gundemeda, who teaches at the Department of Sociology, University of Hyderabad, and whose research areas include Sociology of Education, echoes this thought, and says that students from the middle and elite classes will enjoy the benefits of English medium and continue to have an edge over students in government schools.

He also notes that the government is silent on regulating the privatisation of education, without which the gap in learning in English and the resulting access to opportunities will only widen.

 

Sthabir Khora, Associate Professor at the School of Education, TISS (Tata Institute of Social Sciences) Mumbai, also says that in practice, the more that learning in English is delayed, the more it could be difficult for children to catch up.
