Classes IX-XII could begin from Sept

GOA: Most stakeholders in the field of education said that Classes IX-XII could begin from September 21, even as they expressed concern over ferrying students via Bal Raths and addressed parents’ apprehensions about schools resuming during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.

At least 45 stakeholders participated in a video conference with chief minister pramod sawant to discuss the matter. Shiroda MLA Subhash Shirodkar, who is a member of the state-level task force for the National Education Policy, said that although a sizeable number of Covid-19 cases are reported daily in the state, schools from nursery to college level should not remain closed.

“I feel that schools should be opened from September 21, particularly Classes IX-XII. Every school has a minimum of six classrooms, so social distancing can be maintained,” Shirodkar said. “Classroom teaching is classroom teaching. Students and parents are eagerly awaiting the opening of schools.”
