After a meeting with academicians and experts here, he told reporters that he had received multiple complaints that private tutorials were insisting on conducting classes physically.
“When the state government has taken a decision to stop conducting classes physically between Classes 1 to 9, tutorials must also follow this norm. For us, there is no need to make it a big issue or ego issue. This is a matter of children’s health, hence, it is not right on anyone’s part to be adamant,” he warned.
The minister added that the government was yet to take a decision on whether to conduct examinations for Classes 1 to 9.
“There are two sides of arguments in this regard; that many feel that all students studying in Classes 1 to 9 must be promoted while some experts believe that it was appropriate to hold examinations for above Classes 8 and 9, so that students must have respect for examinations. Therefore, we are yet to decide on this issue,” he said.
