Mother Language based education is essential

Er. Prabhat Kishore
UNESCO has declared 21st February as International Mother Language Day to promote the dissemination of mother language and awareness of linguistic and cultural traditions around the world and to inspire solidarity based on understanding, tolerance and dialogue. It believes that education based on first language or mother language must begin from the early years as Early Child Care & Education is the foundation of learning.
Mother Language is usually the language which the child speaks at home with the family. Education in mother language refers to when a school integrates the child’s language into classroom and school lessons.
