Panaji: National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) Goa on Sunday demanded to stop the offline mode classes for Std 10 and std 12 as there was less then 30% of attendance in school on its first day.
“In fear of Covid-19 parents are scared to send their children to school. If there are no students then why offline classes, continue online classes as it was before since it’s the safe mode of education and take practical’s and difficulties once a week,” NSUI Goa stated.
“SOP’s are practically impossible to maintain, outside the school gate students will tend to meet their friends. Without any social distancing. 12 students per class is not possible due to lack of teachers and infrastructure. Putting mask throughout the day will be suffocating for students as well as teachers,” he further stated.
Citing that other states have closed their schools after 100’s of students and staff were found positive, NSUI Goa has urged the chief minister not to repeat this in Goa. “After knowing the outcome from other states still CM wants to continue with the offline classes , why CM is so ignorant? Why CM is not listening to all the associations and PTA committees?,” he questioned.
“Goa government is trying to play with students future by putting their life at risk , we demand to roll back the decision and continue online classes or else NSUI Goa Will Gherao the Education Department,” he inferred.
