State Government’s lopsided Policies for Online Classes

The state government’s lopsided policies for online classes and the academic year is putting teaching and non-teaching staff at risk, said Goa Forward Party (GFP) here on Thursday.

GFP vice-president Durgadas Kamat said the ministry of  human resource development, in a letter to chief secretaries on July 6, had directed states that educational institutions should remain closed till July 31 and that teaching staff  should continue to work from home. However, education director Vandana Rao has asked teachers to report to schools.

 “The government sent teachers out to conduct the house-to-house survey for Covid but before starting online classes, did the government conduct a survey to check how many students can participate in online classes? Did they check how many students are not covered by online classes and the reasons for not being covered, net connectivity or because they don’t have laptops or mobiles,” said Naik.
