Article Regarding Education via Urdu Medium
A child is blank, my mind and thoughts I mean. He is only aware of crying, babbling, eating, drinking, passing feces and other wastes, but he is not by birth able to design thoughts, to craft characters. His mental age is purely in the hands of his mother, relatives, and peers and off course the teachers.
The researches show that kids in a tender age of 2.5 are being sent in the schools, say, in playgroup, for learning how to sit and stand in the class. This is a torture for him as he is so dependent on others that he barely can think of putting on his trouser by himself, so how can he be able to ‘learn’ the ‘civic class manners?’ now, this is the question for debate.
We are Pakistanis and our national language is Urdu which is a combination of 13 other languages but is commonly understood by all the natives as is widely used in the country. A child is admitted in the school and if the medium of instruction is Urdu then it is better for his mental understanding. He is at ease in receiving the instructions and the contextual meanings of the subjects he is reading.
Till primary level, the medium of instructions in all the schools must be in Urdu as it is good for the students in making his base. He understands the base of all the taught subjects and is big enough to choose and select the field for him in his future life whether he opts to have science or arts subjects, the crux is he ‘understand’ nature and interest level bound to the category of subjects he is going to choose. All school of junior level must think on it.
