Daijiworld Media Network - Tumakuru (SP)

Tumakuru, Mar 18: The desirability of beginning the next academic year in July, considering the welfare and educational progress of the children, is under the consideration of the government, revealed education minister S Suresh Kumar.

He was speaking to media persons during his participation in a programme held at Sri Siddaganga Math. "Last year, in almost all cases, classes were held, but this time, online classes were held mostly. Last year we encountered one type of challenge, but now we have to contend with another challenge," he stated. Irrespective of challenges encountered, decision will be taken purely taking into consideration of the interests of the children and their future," he clarified.

He said that in the background of the talk of the second wave of the pandemic, his department has been consulting the health department. Noting that last year, sixth to 12th standards were opened, he said there is pressure from private schools to allow classes 1 to 5 to be opened. He stated that in the light of the pandemic, this suggestion is currently under consideration.
