Local language schools are seeing an untimely decline in numbers. With the trend of English medium schools catching on, neither the parents, teachers or the children are enabled to communicate, understand or express in English. The resultant is a hollow shell of a generation that can barely get by in English and has no understanding or information since the whole education process becomes ineffective in a ‘foreign’ language.
Government schools are run poorly, and teachers, students and parents have lost faith in the fact that education is best imparted in one’s mother tongue. As a consequence, these schools don’t have good learning systems and efficient delivery mechanisms.
It’s a vicious cycle. In the end, children suffer, education suffers.
