GOA: The parents’ organisation, FORCE, has objected to the state government’s plans to reopen schools in Goa. Taking a dig at members of the legislative assembly, convener Savio Lopes said the state government should first conduct a full-fledged assembly session before planning to reopen schools.Allowing students back on school premises doesn’t look like a good idea at this point in time as covid cases are yet to show a dip in the state, Lopes said.
Lopes also said that online teaching methods being used by schools need to be streamlined immediately as some are trying to impose a timetable for online classes like the one used for regular schooling.“Online classes are a mess. There is no proper application of mind in the way they are conducted. Students are burdened by holding online sessions for subjects like physical education and craft. Schools should concentrate on teaching mathematics and science concepts properly first,” the FORCE convener said.
