PANAJI: The controversy on replacing teaching German with compulsory
Sanskrit as a third language in CBSE schools has brought into focus the
policy in secondary schools after Union human resources development (HRD)
minister Smriti Irani backed the three-language formula in schools.

TOI did a reality check in Goa on Irani's statement of endorsing the
teaching of a non-Indian language as foreign language and not as a third

While Goa's schools have been long following the three-language formula,
the state's policy remains unclear about the third language option in
schools since the medium of instruction (MoI) policy was altered last year.
