According to Santosh Kumar, district representative of the Associated Managements of Primary and Secondary Schools (KAMS), all the unaided schools from Mysuru extended to this strike call. “Our demands includes excluding the old schools from the mandatory fire safety and building safety guidelines, ensuring the BEOs will not promote any students using the Student Tracking System (STS) login and passwords, and reopening of offline regular classes for the students studying between Class I and V,” explained Kumar.
“We requested all the school managements to participate in the strike. We are joining the protest in Bengaluru organised by the schools association,” he concluded.
As the offline classes for the students between Class VI and X already in progress, the students and parents expected to affected by this strike call.
