22 regional languages, including Odia, are going to be taught at Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) schools across the nation, according to an announcement made by Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan. In addition, he stated that the board had issued a circular on Friday allowing regional languages to be taught in local schools.

22 regional languages will be taught

According to Pradhan, 22 regional languages, including Odia, would be taught from standard I to XII in CBSE schools, while Hindi and English have hitherto served as the primary teaching languages. According to the New Education Policy’s provision, the students will now be able to study in regional languages.

NCERT has been asked to prepare books

He asserted that students will comprehend the material more effectively than in Hindi or English if they read in their own tongue. Schools will accommodate kids who want to study in Odia or any other language, he claimed. According to him, the NCERT has also been ordered to create textbooks that reflect this. He stated that plans will be developed to deliver instruction and hold exams in regional languages.

On Twitter, Pradhan stated that the National Education Policy (NEP) places focus on knowing all Indian languages because doing so will help students understand any subject better.
