The Karnataka Primary and Secondary Education Minister S Suresh Kumar said, “From January 1, classes will resume. There have been speculations for the past two days, but whatever programmes we have planned from January 1 will go on.” He also stated that the students don’t need to attend regular classes. If students wish to continue attending classes online, then they can go that route.
The Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan had earlier reiterated that there is no need for any panic as all preventive measures are in place. Quoting the same, the Minister added, “Our state has enough strength and arrangements to face the challenges that we may face in the coming days.”
Adding that the state government will abide by the suggestions given by our Technical Advisory Committee members, he clarified that holding regular classes is a requirement to provide everyone with equal opportunity and the same level of education.
All educational institutions have been shut across the country since March, owing to the COVID-19 pandemic. In such an unprecedented scenario, the online education model has been the only way to keep the education flow constant.
