Bengaluru: Child Rights Commission recommends reopening of schools


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Jun 27: Karnataka State Commission for Protection of Child Rights has urged the state government to reopen the schools, duly taking necessary precautions and safety measures relating to the coronavirus pandemic at the earliest. The commission has expressed the apprehension that the COVID-19 situation may give rise to large number of child marriages, child labour, atrocities on children, exploitation and use of children's services for household work.

The commission has made several recommendations to the department of primary and secondary education on the issues of online classes and reopening of schools. It has expressed the worry that if the situation of schools not functioning continues for long, there will be an increase in the school dropouts.

It said that right for pre-primary, till fifth standard, mass media like radio and television should be used instead of online education. It has recommended a maximum of 90 minutes classes for children studying from sixth to eighth standards, two and half hours for 9th and 10th standard students, and three hours for 11th to 12th classes. It wants the government to strictly enforce the rule to make sure that this maximum online education limit is not exceeded.

"Longer online education can have negative effects on mental and physical health of the children. It will also create a divide between children from urban and rural areas. Therefore, online education can never be an alternative to live classes," the commission has observed.

It has suggested that in schools where shortage of space is being experienced, as per the guidelines of human resources development ministry, class-wise schools can be opened. It said that schools should first be opened in green zones. When red zones finally change into yellow and green zones, protection of children and safety measures should be carefully managed, it has been recommended

    The so called Child Rights Commission seem to be more worried about the Money or Fees the schools earned than our innocent children.

    Prevention is better than cure. I wont be sending my kids to school, even if they re-open with all "So Called Precautions". Hence i don't bother whatever they decide.

    Need of the hour is to practice safety & be healthy as possible.

    First, let them experiment the recommendation of Child rights by sending only the children of Child rights commission, politicians and officials to school for 3 months. Preach and practice first.

    Something seriously wrong with Child Right Commissions mindset and understanding. Looks like this mind half closed. First teach children new normal habits of wearing mask, washing hand, social distancing etc. Parents should teach this and awareness should be created. Then slowly open schools.

    Child Rights Commission should uphold the rights of children to be safe and healthy. That is being with the parents, away from school.

    Child Rights Commission department people may be running private schools or they tie up with other private school owners.

    better save our children from corona than sending school, they can stay at home and relax,
    Once corona cases gone then they can learn in schools. Education if important but not on cost of life.

    The primary right of a child is the right to live followed by right to good health. There are existing laws governing child marriages, underage employment etc which can and should be enforced. Child Rights commission indeed.

    I want to know who's sitting at the child's right commission. Do you even know what you are talking about? Do you have school going children? Are you ready to risk your own children's lives? Online classes, classes through media, TV is still okay. But a BIG NO to physical classes at the moment. We don't want our children to become the guinea pigs to your experiments.
