Karnataka: Final decision on school reopening by Nov 6

November 3, 2020

The Karnataka government may take a decision to reopen schools by November 6. Primary and Secondary Education Minister S. Suresh Kumar has scheduled a meeting with concerned officials for November 4.

Kumar said, “We are seriously studying the Andhra Pradesh model for reopening of schools. Prior to taking any decision, we need to examine everything as it is a question of students’ lives.”

He added that the state has also agreed to reopen colleges from November 17.

The state is also witnessing a trend of Covid positive cases coming down considerably. “Hence we are also giving it a fresh thought to reopen schools,” he added. He also said that experts have suggested that it would be better if schools are reopened in a phased manner. The minister said that not every student can afford online education.

“Prior to reopening, we need to gather information on various fronts besides the health condition of the teachers and students,” he said.

“Experts feel that prolonged closure of schools can have negative impact on child’s mind as well; therefore, we are examining all these things before arriving at a final decision,” Kumar added.
