After replacing German with Sanskrit as third language from Classes VI to VIII, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) has decided to revive a policy of teaching Sanskrit in Classes XI and XII.
Centre on Thursday submitted before the Supreme Court that Sanskrit will be the third language in classes 6 to 8 in Kendriya Vidyalayas.
The agreement on teaching German as a third language in central schools was in "violation" of the three-language formula and therefore it was not renewed, the government said today.
The Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) Wednesday told the Delhi High Court that it had introduced foreign languages as `optional subject` for the better career prospects of students and had `not removed the Sanskrit language` from its curriculum.
Fifty-six cases of sexual harassment have been reported in the Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti and the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan since 2010, government said.
Government said it will consider opening Kendriya Vidyalays (KVs) in 155 districts where such schools do not exist.
