Bengaluru, Dec 9: Educationists and representatives of various organisations have written to state education minister S Suresh Kumar, urging him to reopen classes right from pre-primary to second PU before December 15.
They said that if the classes begin by December 15, 180 days of the current academic year will be available till the middle of June next year and it would be possible to teach all the lessons. Adjustments can be made at local level if required. Therefore, they have suggested to hold the current academic year till June 15 and start the next academic year from July next year.
They said that online education has not been of any benefit for most of the students and it is causing different problems. Therefore they have demanded for the scrapping of online classes at all levels.
