Union Education Minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank will interact with Kendriya Vidyalaya students today on its twitter account. Following the tweet, many school students raised their concerns regarding appearing for exams and school reopening with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
While some students raised objections on returning to schools, others demanded to provide vaccination first. Many students asked about when the Kendriya Vidyalaya schools will be reopened. Students even expressed their unwillingness to appear for exams as no classroom teaching was initiated last year, citing their lack of preparedness for the exams.
A student of Kendriya Vidyalaya from Mathura tweeted that he has been unable to study due to the conduction of academics in online mode for the whole of this year. He added that it is a big problem for them and are confronting problems that the government is not considerate about.
Students unhappy with school reopening decision
Another student raised a question stating will all the KV schools terminate the online classes from 18th January or will online and offline classes go together. He asserted that not all students want to go back to school as they are not getting vaccinated. Please vaccinate all the students before reopening the schools, another student demanded.
A student from Navodaya School asked Pokhriyal to interact with students from Navodaya Schools too.
A student named Harsh tweeted on Nishank Pokhriyal account questioning that when teaching was done in online mode then why exams should be conducted in online mode. As corona strain cases are increasing, students are getting afraid to appear for exams in offline mode.
Notable, many school students had earlier began an online petition to cancel the upcoming class 10th and 12th board exams for this academic year. The school students while expressing their concerns over the conduct of CBSE class 10th and 12th Board exams claimed that online learning has not been as effective as classroom teaching. The petition further claimed that several school students failed to attend the online classes due to lack of resources, financial crises, and poor internet connectivity.
