Even as the schools continue to reopen across the states, the online classes are not going away, said the Minister of Education Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank while answering a question raised by a student of Kendriya Vidyalaya.
“Even as the schools are reopening, we will not do away with the online classes. The online classes will take place simultaneously for students. We expect 50 per cent of students to continue taking classes on online mode, especially for classes for which schools have not been reopening, and for students who would not be able to attend the classes physically,” said the minister.
He said the schools will not go back to their previous state till the authorities are “totally satisfied”. Even during the classes, social distancing norms will be followed. Addressing parents, the minister asked them to send their children to school. He said, “Parents will be worried for their students but I would also ask them to entrust the authorities as well.”
