Pre-primary books to be in 5 ethnic languages: Nahid

Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid today said the government has decided to print pre-primary level books in five ethnic languages from the next academic year.

“We will print pre-primary level books in Chakma, Marma, Tripura, Sadri and Garo languages from the next academic year,” Nahid told reporters after a meeting at National Curriculum and Textbook Board (NCTB) in Dhaka today.

The decision was taken considering that pre-primary-level students of the ethnic communities face difficulty if they are not allowed to learn in their mother tongue.

The education minister also said the government would print around 1.32 crore guides for primary and high school teachers to teach the students properly.
