Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Jun 5: By way of clarification aimed at putting to rest all kinds of suspicions and speculations, minister for primary and secondary education, S Suresh Kumar, stressed that the government is not in any hurry to open schools in the state. He added that the government has not so far issued any order towards this end.

The minister gave this information with reference to discussions on social media about the schools reopening, on the basis of a circular issued by the department. He said that the central government has asked the states to hold discussions with parents and others connected with the issue and send the crux of the opinion so collected by July. "Therefore, the department has issued circular asking schools to pool opinions between June 10 and 12. Our aim was to guide the headmasters and School Development and Monitoring Committees towards this end and not for reopening of schools," he stated.

He however, promised that the government will always be sensitive to the concerns of the parents.

    I am not sending my children to school until the school and surroundings are free of virus.
    Yes, life of my children is more important than one year of studies in the school.

    Parents meeting has to happen on 10th, 11th & 12th .. on next week. Date is depending on the school.

    If majority parents in the meeting says to open the school, school will open.
    Otherwise, any other suggestion will be sent to the government.

    Please do not let schools to open. It is better to think before than regretting later. One academic year is nothing in front of children's lives. .

    This is a wise decision not to open schools until Corona Virus fear dies down. Yes medical opinions and surveys say that we may have to learn to live with this virus eventually. Let us cross that bridge when it comes. As of now our children's lives are more important than anything else. Since studies indicate that children are more prone to be infected by this virus, prevention is better than cure.
    Parents will have to manage keeping kids occupied until then. !!!

    130 infected in a single school!
    Schools ordered to close and 6800 in quarantine.
    The government (KA) has said it will not take decisions in haste and is taking public opinion.
    We hope the decisions made will be fruitful.

    You are misreporting the incident
    - Incident of 130 infected in Single school happened in Israel.
    - Israel asked Infected schools to close, to contain the disease in the area
    - All other schools & educational institutes will run as usual.
    - Parents can decide, whether to lose an academic year or not. School will run. Children's who want to save academic year, will attend as normal.
    - It is like Chickenpox, once it happens, that student cannot come to school. But, once he gets cured, for whole life he will be safe from Chickenpox. OR at-least antibody will be there in body to fight the virus.
    - Many parents, specially woman are being forced to resign from job, because children are in home. In poor families, elder children are sent for child labour or are stopped from going to school to look after younger children.
