The Government of Karnataka is yet undecided on the dates of school reopening in the state- Check the details provided on the issue by the state education minister S Suresh Kumar
The Karnataka government today informed the parents of the school students that the state was not in a hurry to reopen schools and also asked them not to panic regarding the same. State Education Minister S Suresh Kumar said, “We have not taken any decision regarding reopening on schools in the state yet. The government does not have any such plans to reopen schools at present.”
The government also informed that it was not mulling resumption of schools in the near future also. Kumar also added while addressing the reporters, “Let there be no panic. The state government has not yet taken a call on reopening the schools. There is no thought on starting them in the near future.”
It was on September 20, 2020, that the State government had prohibited students of Classes 9 to 12 from visiting their schools and pre-university colleges to meet teachers in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most of the schools except the ones that are state-run are at present holding online classes through video conferences for students.
The minister said while addressing the media, “We are taking the opinions of Legislators, MPs, and concerned people. We will also have a discussion with education experts and institutions.” The minister’s statement came after many reports surfaced that he was seeking the opinion of other ministers and MLAs about reopening schools, which are not conducting regular classes due to coronavirus scare since the lockdown was clamped in the state.
He added, “after getting everyone’s views, we will make a decision. We are not rushing, there is no hurry. Keeping the future of our children and the concerns of their parents in mind, we will move forward.”
