Panaji:  Days after Chief minister Pramod Sawant announced that online classes are not compulsory, teachers from state’s Higher Secondary Schools have complained that the number of students for such classes have been on decline.

Higher Secondary Teachers’ Association President Anant Pissurlekar, in a press statement released here, has questioned why Chief Minister asked the schools and higher secondary schools (11 and 12 standard) to begin with online classes.

The academic year in the state of Goa has been delayed due to COVID-19 pandemic situation. Sawant, on June 22,had clarified that online classes were compulsory as many students were without proper internet facility or gadgets.

Pissurlekar said “by announcing that online classes are not compulsory, it not understood what exactly the CM is trying to convey.”

“Some days back, he himself, had said that due to COVID19, there will be delay in opening of the schools,” he said.

“Accordingly, all the teachers were trained by Department of Education for online classes,” he recalled.

“The classes had even begun. But due to the latest statement by the chief minister, the students who were paying attention to the online classes are distracted and have started neglecting the classes,” he said.

“As a result, the attendance is declining everyday. The teachers are honestly doing their duty of imparting education from time to time, even if a single student appears for online class,” Pissurlekar said.

“But, if these online classes were not beneficial to all the while why did they ask us to conduct the classes,” he questioned.
