State Government directs DSERT to formulate syllabus

Udupi: Karnataka Konkani Sahitya Academy president Eric Ozario said on
Friday that Konkani is likely to be introduced as a third language in
classes VI to X in the State from 2007.  The State Government has
asked the DSERT (Department of State Educational Research and
Training) to formulate the syllabus for the language, he said.
Addressing presspersons here, Mr. Ozario said the academy would start
teaching Konkani in 30 schools of Udupi, Dakshina Kannada and Uttara
Kannada districts from June 2006 on an experimental basis. The academy
has accepted Kannada script for Konkani language in the State. It had
sought the opinion of Konkani organisations throughout the State and
65 per cent of them supported Kannada script.
