The Government of Tamil Nadu has postponed the reopening of schools across the state after a meeting was held between parents and the school authorities. Strong opposition has been faced by the school administration from the concerned parents. On Monday, a meeting was conducted with parents, teachers of government schools, private schools, and government-aided schools.
About 12000 schools took part in the meeting to express their opinions on reopening the schools in the state from 16th November. K.A. Sengottaiyan, the school education minister of the state said, ‘A final decision on reopening the schools on November 16 will be taken by the Chief Minister and he will make an announcement.’ Previously, the state government had announced that the schools will be reopened to the students of classes 10, 11, and 12 starting from 16th November 2020.
On the other hand, the colleges for research and final postgraduate students will be reopened on 2nd December 2020. The state government of Tamil Nadu had diminished the school syllabus for the academic year 2020-21 by about 40 percent keeping the current pandemic situations in mind. Eventually, the government initiated classes for the students via its educational television channels.
Previously, the government had removed shift-based classes when schools reopen across the state. The government stated that all the classes would commence operating concurrently. A minimum of 45 percent of school students has given their feedback on whether to reopen the schools or continue to shut. As per the latest reports, most of the parents weren’t in favor of reopening the schools this month. Most of the parents were willing to reopen the schools after January 2021.
