School, PU Colleges to remain closed in the state of Karnataka

Despite the approval from the Centre to the States in the matter of opening of the educational institutions in a phased manner as part of the Unlock 5, the Karnataka State government has made it clear that the schools and PU colleges of the state will remain closed for now. This decision was made taking into account the fact that the COVID19 cases in the state show no signs of dropping in the near future.

The institutions can be reopened only after taking proper precautions and the guidelines given by the centre should also be followed to ensure the safety of the students and staff who will come in case it happens. These measures are of utmost importance because in a crowded atmosphere such as a school, in today’s pandemic situation, there are high chances that the students get tested positive for the virus and these are concerns in the minds of the parent that cannot be taken lightly. Also keeping in mind the upcoming Deepavali and Christmas holidays and considering that the current semester has almost come to an end, some consider that it would be better to wait till it is time for the next semester to begin to make decisions regarding offline classes for students. But on the other hand, some have shown concern about the present 9th to 12th standard students, as these are important milestones in their education.

While academics and education are important for students to acquire the knowledge required to succeed in today’s competitive world, it is important to keep in mind that the health of the children is equally important for a successful future. Thus this decision should be welcomed as it puts the health of the children at the topmost priority. In today’s situation where everyone is battling against the pandemic, one can only hope that time will change things for the better and let’s wait for a better tomorrow.
