Indigenous students yet to get textbooks in mother tongue
The indigenous students were supposed to receive the textbooks nearly two months ago. The government, for the first time ever in the country's history, distributed free pre-primary textbooks printed in five indigenous languages in the indigenous  on January 1 – Textbook Festival Day. In Rangamati, students of only 26 schools in the municipality areas received the textbooks and exercise books written in Chakma, Marma and Tripura languages during the festival. At that time, Rangamati Hill District Council Chairman Brish Ketu Chakma said the rest of the schools would get the textbooks in a few days, but they did not. “We still have not received enough books to supply to all our students,” said Reena Talukdar, headmistress of Raja Nalinakhya Roy Government Primary School. She also pointed out that even if they received the textbooks, giving lessons to the students would be difficult as the teachers had not been properly trained to teach students in their native languages.

When contacted Rangamati district Education Officer Zillur Rahman said he hoped that the remaining textbooks would arrive in Rangamati soon. About the teachers' inadequate training, he said the district administration was working on providing training to 375 teachers. Rangamati Sadar upazila Education Officer Triratan Chakma reiterated Zillur's assurance that all indigenous pre-primary students would have their textbooks soon. He further said he had learnt about the district administration's initiative of teaching training in the native languages and hoped that there would not be such crisis next year.
