Abstract: This study was mainly aimed at identifying the factors that have facilitated or hindered the implementation of using Awgni as a medium of instruction in the lower primary schools in Awi zone. The subjects of the study included 80 students, 65 teachers, 10 school principals, 3 woreda education office experts, one zonal education department expert and 20 parents, which where selected with purposive and simple random sampling techniques. Interview, focused group discussion, and questionnaire were used to gather data. Percentage and qualitative analysis were used to analyze the collected data. The results of the study show that enough time was not provided: to prepare curricular materials; to prepare teachers, to convince parents, to organize the offices and departments, and to prepare and to use long-term plans. Thus, entering into implementation without preparation seems to be the source of the problems that were created during the implementation period. Moreover, poor textbooks, the assignment of untrained teachers, the assignment of incapable personnel in the education offices and departments, the shortage and/or the absence of curricular materials, the lack of professional support, and the strong resistance of parents were the results of the unprepared environment to use Awgni as a medium of instruction. Hence, it appears to be wise and timely to revise the program as well as to give explanation to parents about the advantages of using mother tongue as medium of instruction. Those concerned especially the education offices, departments and administrative councils at wereda & zone levels should conduct free discussions with parents and adjustments should be made based on the consensus reached and evidences gathered through follow up and research
