Karnataka’s Education Minister Has Strict Action For Schools That Conduct Offline Classes For Students In Grades 1 To 5 Be Prosecuted: S Suresh Kumar, Karnataka’s Minister of Primary and Secondary Education, has urged the state’s education department to take action against schools that offer offline classes for children in class 1 to 5. “As per the recommendations of the Covid-19 technical advisory committee, the state government had authorised schools to conduct physical classes for only students in grades 6 and up. Many schools across the state have been stated in the media to be conducting offline classes for classes under six,” Suresh Kumar said.
He went on to say that the government has taken the issue seriously in view of the growing number of Covid-19 cases in the state. The minister also told the Commissioner of Public Instruction to form taluk-level monitoring committees to find schools that were breaking the rules. He said, “Strict action will be taken against the managements of such schools.”
The Commissioner will issue a circular in this regard, according to department officials. Dr. K Sudhakar, the Minister of Health and Family Welfare, expressed concern about the situation last week and asked Suresh Kumar to look into it. “It has been found that some private schools are holding offline classes for grades 1 to 6 despite the fact that the government has not granted them permission. We’ve also got complaints,” he said on Twitter. Sudhakar also indicated that certain schools’ accreditation be revoked for failing to follow the government’s Covid-19 guidelines.
