BangaloreAs the coronavirus continues to increase in the state, the state government has decided to curtail the schooling till the 15th and canceled the permission of some classes of students to visit school and college to resolve the text questions.
In spite of parental objections, children from grades 9 to 12 were allowed to visit their school colleges and resolve textual doubts.
This permission has also been revoked as coronavirus has increased. According to the new Commissioner of Education, V. Anbu Kumar, children from grades 9 to 12 have been allowed to visit their schools and colleges for the relief of textual doubts from the 21st to the high schools except in the containment zone. However, the decision has been reconsidered by the department. The decision has been taken as there is an opinion that it is unsafe for children to visit schools.
School- There is no dilemma in starting college; Suresh Kumar clarified
There is no rhetoric about starting schools and colleges in the state. Primary and secondary education minister S. Suresh Kumar reiterated that schools will not be reopened in haste.
Speaking in Bengaluru, he said that the central government has instructed the states to take action regarding the opening of schools. We do not make any hasty decision. I consult with representative parents, education experts. Child protection is our first priority. Thus there is no need for parents to worry. He has made it clear that schools will not be started in haste.
The Union Government released the Unlock 0.5 Guideline yesterday, which gives the responsibility of starting school and college to the respective state governments. The minister said this in the wake of the debate over whether to start a school in the state.
