Two 3rd grade students were humiliated by their teachers for speaking in their mother tongue, in a school in Andhra Pradesh, India. They were asked to go around the school, with slates hung from their neck! The slates said "I will never speak Telugu". Their moms found this during lunch time!
Can these school teachers be any more stupid?
Already there is a movement in India, saying we should use 'mother tongue' for anything and everything! These overly enthusiastic and stupid teachers are giving fodder to this movement!
Apart from these political reasons, do they ever think of the psychological impact on these kids? What would those moms have felt when they saw their kids like that?
Will these kids ever like to speak in their mother tongue?
I hope the government gives suitable punishment to these teachers!
