Bengaluru: State's primary and secondary education minister, S Suresh Kumar has asked the Department of Public Instruction to register a complaint in the cybercrime police station against the teacher who shared a video of a child mispronouncing a Kannada word. The viral video shows the child from a government school incorrectly pronouncing the word 'Pakkelubu' (ribcage). The minister observed, "It is normal for children to pronounce words incorrectly and only repetitive practise will make them say it correctly. If a video of such a mistake is made and spread on the Internet the child will see it in future and be demoralised and might start to hate learning. The person who made and posted this video has committed a grave crime." Besides this, the minister has asked the department to issue a circular that teachers found to be making and posting such videos of their students will have criminal proceedings against them.
