Sanskrit Shiksha Sangh draws CBSE to court following private schools’ inability to follow Sanskrit as third language

Sanskrit Shiksha Sangh (SSS) recently gave a legal notice to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), for being unable to make the private schools affiliated by it. The association will approach the High Court, in case of an improper response or action from the board.

SSS general secretary V Dayalu told ET, “It has been six months since the KVs stopped teaching German as the third language subject.”

“But students in many private schools continue to learn Spanish, French, German as the third language in classes VI, VII and VIII. The government cannot have a different approach for KVs and a different one for private schools,” Dayalu added.

The three-language formula included in the national education policy states that secondary stage students should also learn a modern Indian language apart from English and Hindi.

As per ET’s report, in 2013, the SSS had moved the Delhi High Court alleging that the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan’s decision to introduce German as a third language in place of Sanskrit was against this formula. This eventually caused the government to drop German as the third language in Kendriya Vidyalayas.

Monica Arora, representative of Supreme Court lawyers of SSS told ET, “This isn’t a battle between foreign languages and Sanskrit. We are okay with schools offering any modern Indian language as the third language subject. We just want CBSE to follow what it had stated in its affidavit in the high court. They should either follow the law or have it changed”.
