Karnataka: Homework might just get lighter for students of Classes IV and V
Minister for Primary and Secondary Education, Government of Karnataka, BC Nagesh, talks about lighter homework and uniforms
Karnataka's Minister for Primary and Secondary Education, BC Nagesh, said that the government is planning to make homework lighter for students of Classes IV and V, as per the National Education Policy 2020.
Nagesh told TNIE, "The Kali Nali methodology adopted at schools already doesn't permit any homework for students up to Class III," he said.
SSLC results are expected by the second or third week of May, he added.
The Minister also said that re-tendering of uniforms will be done for government school students, as the cost quoted by stakeholders was abnormally high. "The stakeholders have claimed that last year, the cost of uniforms was low since they wanted to push stock due to the COVID pandemic situation. Now, they are urging us to consider the cost of transportation as rates of diesel have gone up. The tender process for uniforms will be completed soon," Nagesh said.
