Education / medium

http://in.news.yahoo.com/060924/211/67vst.html

Depressing. Is the debate over a language [ which is mainly a tool for communication and must not become not an identity – that should be associated with what one does not symbols of a group or community etc ] more important than the basic need of education itself ?

Morover, can anyone really argue that forcibly not teaching in English will inculcate a love for the vernacular, and also not reduce the competitive advantage one may have ?

If the real world primarily operated in language X, that would logically reflect in education. Egoes, language-politics should have no place in this. Languages are a practical tool, not something that should serve other needs.
