Some primary schools of Bangalore refused to acknowledge the government’s order on indefinite holiday over coronavirus outbreak and hence have come under the radar of the state government. Several schools are still conducting classes for primary students. Education minister S Suresh Kumar has sought details on such schools.
The state government called the indefinite holiday after considering that the kids are prone to contract coronavirus. It also took serious note of the lapses by the schools and school management and has directed the Principal Secretary to gather details of such schools and submit a report and initiate strict action against such schools.
The education minister has also clarified that the final exams will be conducted after the schools reopen. Referring to schools that are still functioning on the pretext of conducting examination, Kumar said, “The exams for the primary schools can be conducted after the reopening of schools. But no school is allowed to hold classes for primary kids by giving examination as the reason.”
