Education Minister emphasises the need to impart education to children till class 5th in their respective local dialects



Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan emphasised the importance of providing education to children up to the 5th class in their respective local dialects. While speaking at the Eastern Regional Languages Centre in Bhubaneswar,  he further highlighted the recommendation in the National Education Policy, suggesting that primary education should be delivered in local dialects till class 8th, preferably till class 5.

Pradhan underscored the developmental benefits of children learning and writing in the language they hear and speak during their early years. He stated that such an approach significantly enhances a child’s ability to use logic, express thoughts, and conduct analysis.

A memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was also signed between the Central Institute of Indian Languages (CIIL), Mysore and NCERT, New Delhi in the presence of the union minister to undertake research on languages.
