Yogi Adityanath wants English subject to be taught from Class I to Class 6 in government schools. According to ABVP leader Saket Bahuguna, the medium of instruction in government primary schools should be the mother tongue of the region, while English could be taught as one of the subjects. The matter will be discussed at the national executive council meeting of ABVP in Lucknow from May 29 to May 31. There will be around 400 ABVP representatives at the event. The chief minister, on the other hand, has emphasised the need for teaching English, written and spoken, at the primary level so that children can match up to the private school standards. The basic education department has already started identifying teachers who can converse in English and help students go beyond basic spoken sentences in English.
