Do you support Online classes in the present academic year for school going children?Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the entire educational schedule got severely disrupted. Last academic year's final exams are also not completed in a proper way. Due to the severity of the situation many boards promoted the students to the next classes by considering internal marks. But as the new academic year started, many private institutions started online classes for school going children to PG level. Some of the private institutes started online classes even in the summer holidays itself. But government institutions have not started any online classes for students. At present, the AP government announced Private school institutions to stop online classes for school children. The reasons that they are saying are school institutions are pressurizing parents to pay the school fee and other charges, parents have to spend on buying Smartphones or tablets or laptops, bear charges of net data, children will be put into discomfort as they face eyesight problems and psychological problems. Poor students in government schools cannot go along with Private school students in studies in this academic year.
Already ICSE Board and some other state boards have reduced 25% of the syllabus in the present academic year. There is already an estimation, the educational institutions may not be fully functional till November. The central government also not clearly announced any schedule for this academic year. There is no other go other than conducting online classes to accomplish education to some extent in this pandemic situation. Do you support Online classes for School Children in the present pandemic situation? Why or why not? Think like a parent of a schoolchild and respond to this thread.
