Good Answers to Tough Questions in Mother Tongue Based Multilingual Education

The idea of using local languages of instruction in the primary grades is catching the interest of governments, donors, and NGOs alike. National-level programs are aiming to develop and implement curriculum for teaching in the languages of the nation rather than international languages. Supported by large education donors, these programs have the scope and the backing to make a significant difference to education quality and access for speakers of the minority languages of the country.
