Students Oppose Removal of Balinese Language from Schools

Hundreds of students from a number of state and private universities in Bali have held a demonstration to protest against the central government’s plan to eliminate Balinese language from the curriculum.

Carrying posters and banners and wearing Balinese attire, students from the State Hindu Dharma Institute, Dwijendra University, Udayana University and the IKIP PGRI teacher’s college expressed their concern for the future of the language if the government continued with its plan.
