Kolkata: The West Bengal government has made Bangla compulsory in all schools across the state, irrespective of which board the institutions are affiliated to.
Presently, students study two languages in schools. From class 7, they study a third language which is either an Indian or a foreign language.
Chief minister Mamata Banerjee, in a Facebook post, said,"Bengal respects all languages. Our three language formula proves that... Students have the freedom to take any language of their choice as a first language, second or third. But, one the three languages has to be Bengali. This method would enable them to reach regional, national and international standards," she said.
