Karnataka government allows online classes for children

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Jun 29: Even before the committee of experts formed to frame guidelines on teaching the school children through online classes came out with its report, the state government has asked the concerned to fall in line with the guidelines of the ministry of human resource development (MHRD) for the time being.

As per the guideline, for the students of pre-primary classes, online communication and guidance can be provided one day in a week for 30 minutes with the parents. The education department has formed a committee of experts to create guidelines as there are many complaints about several schools from the state following unscientific ways of online teaching. In the meanwhile, the high court has advised the government to allow for limited period online education. The MHRD has said that this is subject to the discretion of the states depending on the prevailing situation. The state government now wants this guideline to be followed.

This new guideline, the government has clearly stated, will be applicable till the experts committee appointed by the state government submits its report and its guidelines are released. The government has also said that online education is being provided to supplement regular education. Therefore, it has asked the schools not to charge any additional fee for this service. It has told the schools in no uncertain terms that the expenses involved should be borne out of the annual tuition fee that is charged to the students.

As per the new guideline, online classes can be undertaken as follows:

1. For pre-primary classes: 30 minute session once a week

2. Class 1 to 5: 30 to 45 minutes every alternate days

3. Class 6 to 8: 30 to 45 minutes - two sessions per day for five days a week

4. Class 9 and 10: 30 to 45 minutes - four sessions a day for five days a week

    Covid-19 will be permanent disease like Flu. We need to live with it.

    No Vaccine or Herd Immunity works. It is like Flu.

    Even if you take a vaccine for flu, you will not get life time protection. It will give 6 months to 1 year protection.

    Covid-19 vaccines will cost 10,000+ because of demand.

    "Nature Medicine" magazine has conducted a study, which said - Antibody for Covid-19 disappears from a person body from 2-3 months of recovery.

    So getting antibody through Vaccine or getting out of disease, will not guarantee permanent solution.

    Only option is everyone should improve their Body Immunity & make sure FLATTEN the CURVE - No of patients should be always less than beds & medical facility available in an area.

    Good move by the Government, I'm not in favour of kids using gagdets but instead of hurrying to reopen schools and risking children's life's this is the only option left. As we have read news yesterday an SSLC student in Padubidri has contracted by the virus and can't imagine the plight of children who appeared the exam in the same room, how will be thier state of mind now while taking the remaining papers.

    why government is not thinking about the children's future? if one year children not going to school nothing will happen? if once child is addicted to online class, then wil loose the interest to go school. By internet recharge and by spoiling the life of children's is there any benefit to govt?

    Remember children are competing for seats at national level.

    If children are not made ready, they will get really bad rank in next year entrance tests.

    There is no solution for Covid-19. Even a vaccine comes, already rich countries have booked initial consignments.

    We are from a village in Udupi district, most of the time we are not even getting 2G network. This is the story of most of the villages. Students studying in the same class, few who are residing in areas with good internet connectivity will be able to download the online class videos / materials etc. but most will struggle. Without any proper plan why Govt. is in hurry?

    Due to pandemic except online education there is no other solution in nearest future.
    Duration of the class specified is too less to cover up the portion specially CBSE system.
    Authorities please reduce the portion for this year.
