Nagpur: After reports surfaced about CBSE schools in Nagpur threatening to shut down online classes for students, Some parents have reported that the schools affiliated to the state board have already started doing this.
A parent at a state board-affiliated school in the heart of this city has said that they have stopped online classes for students and that children should be sent to school.
Even in rural areas, this is a common trend as those online classes are not possible at all.
A principal has said that it is very easy for the government to issue a circular and say and do this. But only teachers know how difficult it is to complete a lesson. When only half of your students are attending the online class. The people in the class obey every word and can immediately ask for clarification. Whereas people in the household are sometimes lost due to poor internet connectivity or the child’s inherent inability to understand what is being taught.
Large number of students are ready
Another principal has said that parents themselves should understand that all this is being done for the educational future of their own child. Parents of students complain about offline classes, They are going to vacation spots and weddings. In many affluent schools, they can see on social media that parents of students are on leave abroad.
However, how are schools getting away with it with the country’s government making hybrid teaching compulsory? The principal himself says that a very large number of students are ready to come and that is why he is taking this step.
A Marathi medium school near Ajni has stopped online classes. The principal has also told that he never had an online option, Only videos were being sent by teachers on WhatsApp numbers available with them. And half the numbers have been closed, While some others had never recharged their own data pack, Which meant that class videos sent in the month of August were distributed in November. Because of this online thing has always failed for schools like them.
