The Karnataka government had recently received suggestions from cabinet ministers to stop online classes till class VII. On Wednesday, the state government decided to discontinue online classes for children from Kindergarten (KG) to Class 5. The classes were stopped after several complaints were received.

Primary and Secondary Education Minister S Suresh Kumar said, “The decision to stop online classes yesterday was taken after receiving several complaints from parents and after consulting experts in this regard.”

He said that everyone is in favor of the fact that online classes cannot replace physical classes.

“Two decisions have been taken – online classes for LKG, UKG and primary classes should be stopped immediately. Also, charging fees in the name of online classes should be stopped immediately,” the minister told reporters on Wednesday.

How to connect the children during this period was also discussed in the meeting. He said that a committee under the leadership of Professor MK Sridhar has been constituted to prepare guidelines for involving students and increasing their productivity.

Parents are pressurizing the government to act as private schools were conducting online classes for kindergarten children.
