PANJIM: “The decision of the Goa Government not to permit new primary
schools in, inter-alia, Konkani language will not only prevent Goan parents
from initiating primary level instruction to their children in their
mother-tongue, but also is directly contradictory to the Government’s
Official Language Policy”, Asmitai Pratishthan said.

In a press release, the Pratishthan said, “The Director of Education should
realise the need to encourage civil society to set up Konkani medium
primary schools, especially because Government has not taken any initiative
for setting up Konkani schools after Liberation of Goa. Wherever there is
no existing Konkani medium school within 1 km of the newly proposed Konkani
school, the new Konkani school should be permitted subject to the usual
guidelines”.

Congratulating those who have applied for permissions to set up new primary
schools in Konkani, Prof Shyam Verencar, Pratishthan Secretary, urged the
concerned institutions and societies to continue their efforts with the
Government in the interest of preserving Konkani language and culture.
