Archdiocesan Board Supports English

The Archdiocesan Board of Education that was amongst the first to adopt Konkani as a medium of instruction nearly two decades ago, has now extended its support to the demand for English as a medium of instruction at primary schools.
The board clarified that the demand from parents is that besides regional languages, English medium primary schools should also get government grants and that Konkani or Marathi should be one of the compulsory languages throughout the elementary education.

The ABE argued that teaching at primary school shall, as far as practicable, be in the mother tongue of the child, unless the parents or guardians request otherwise in writing and said its stand was in the best interest of the children particularly those coming from poor background.
