On Monday, September 12, Praveen Prakash, Principal Secretary of School Education shared via a media statement that the aim behind launching English medium in government schools is to ensure that students, who might be from underprivileged backgrounds in society, will have a shot at competing with students at an international level.
Prakash requested the students to boost the morale of students and encourage them to speak in English when they are in school. This is to make sure that they are comfortable with the language.
He also mentioned the tabs distributed to students and asked teachers to make sure that they are being put to good use. He hoped that BYJU'S content and TOEFL training would help students and become a vital part of the curriculum of the school.
