Prof M K Sridhar Member of the Committee for National Education Policy 2019 while speaking during the discussion said that three language policy was recommended for implementation right from the beginning three years of basic education.
He mentioned that the 15 years of education system, which starts from elementary to colleges, is divided into 10 + 2 + 3. In the draft National Education Policy 2019, the combination of 15 years had conceptualised in 5 + 3 + 3 + 4 pattern, from pre-primary to 12th standard. Therefore the basic formal education begins at an age of three years instead of five years, he added.
He mentioned that a child’s brain attains 80% development at the age of six years. It is at this age that the child attains individuality. Therefore, the education should be informal in nature from three to eight years of age. Learning of languages should be given preference in this age and it aids in the creative development of the child.
