HYDERABAD: Telangana government has instructed officials to include Telugu subject as a compulsory one in all private and government schools in the state with effect from the academic year 2018-19. An Act will be passed soon in the assembly session.
The chief minister KCR met the team of officials which visited Tamil Nadu to study the implementation of Tamil in educational institutions there. After knowing their views, he discussed with them the guidelines to be framed to teach Telugu as a compulsory subject and protect the culture and language of the original Telugu.
KCR about Importance of Telugu subject:
KCR said “We have decided that Telugu will be taught as a compulsory subject in private and government schools to save the language and protect the culture. It has become a necessity for everyone these days to study in the English medium with the changing circumstances. Children’s future should not be disturbed, and at the same time, Telugu should not be neglected. This is the reason we are putting a condition that even children studying in the English medium should study Telugu as a subject,”
Telugu subject only till 10th:
Initially, it was felt that Telugu should be made a compulsory subject till the Intermediate level. However, since the Intermediate course is not the same in all the educational institutions, it was felt it would be difficult to introduce Telugu as a compulsory language at this stage.so the compulsion of Telugu language will be limited to only 10th to school level he added.
