Karnataka school year to extend till May: Education minister S Suresh Kumar – Times of India


BENGALURU: The current academic year will go on till May for all classes and the next academic year is likely to begin only in July, primary and secondary education minister S Suresh Kumar said.

“We already announced SSLC exams will not be held before May end,” Kumar told TOI. “So the academic year will continue till then. Some learning must happen before students take exams.”

Assessment will be done at the school level, except for class 10. This will be based on the concept of continuous and comprehensive evaluation.

Indicating that reopening schools for primary grades this academic year cannot be ruled out, the minister said it will depend on how the Covid-19 technical advisory committee perceives the situation.

“We are open to involving all children in some academic activity or other,” he said. “Students in private schools, who are more privileged, must be viewed differently from those in government schools. The government’s role is to promote a mechanism where every child gets the right to an education.”

On whether preschools and daycare centres will open this year, the minister said the issue rests with the women and child welfare department.
