The High Court of Karnataka has received a petition from twenty parents of students studying in CBSE/CICSE schools, challenging the compulsory teaching of Kannada as a language. The parents argue that this requirement infringes on their children's right to choose languages and could adversely affect their academic and employment prospects. The court has issued notices to the state government, Union of India, CBSE, and CICSE, and the case will undergo further examination by the court.
