    Solution:

    The given statement is true.
    The 1854 Despatch on Education favoured English as a medium of higher education in India.
    In 1854, the London Court of Directors of the East India Company issued an educational dispatch to the Governor-General of India. It has been known as Wood's Despatch since Charles Wood, the Company's President of the Board of Control, sent it out. It provided an overview of the educational approach adopted in India and emphasised the benefits of a European learning system over information from the East. The 1854 Despatch on Education supported using English as a language of instruction for higher education in India. Another assertion in Wood's Despatch was that Indians' moral integrity would be strengthened by exposure to European civilisation. As a result, they would start becoming truthful and reliable, giving the Company workers it could rely on.
