Shimla: Himachal Pradesh School Education board has decided to start teaching English, Math and Hindi from Class 1 from the coming academic session.
HP Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh, while speaking at the local event, has already announced to start make these subjects mandatory in all Government schools.
Virbhadra Singh further revealed that the Government was also considering to start Punjabi and Urdu classes in Middle schools onwards provided a batch of more than 30 to 40 children were interested to take up the subjects and the teachers would be made available accordingly.
He also added that the practice of not conducting exams for students from Class 1 to Class 8 and assessing them by grades is not good. Chief Minister said
it was not in good practice that there were no exams for the students from first to eighth class in the school and the performance of the children was being assessed from grading them by the school teachers itself
