The AP government has once again clarified about online classes ban. Educational minister Adimulapu Suresh warned private institutions not to conduct any online classes until the government releases an academic calendar. He also warned them about the serious consequences that they will have to face if they pressurize parents to pay the fee.
From a couple of weeks, we are seeing that the private educational institutions are pressurizing parents to pay the fee for online classes. Many students are facing trouble as they do not have any access to smart gadgets and wifi. In addition, it is also putting a lot of financial burden on parents amidst these crisis times. With this being the scenario, AP government clarified about online classes ban. Educational Minister Adimulapu Suresh said that the academic year is likely to begin from 3rd August 2020.
He said that no educational institution should conduct online classes until the academic year schedule is released. This decision is said to be taken keeping in mind all those who are not able to afford smartphones and laptops. The education minister also added that the government doesn’t want any disparity between the students in terms of gaining knowledge. He also questioned that how can one afford to buy smart gadgets while managing the household itself has become difficult during this pandemic. Educational Minister also said that several institutions aren’t paying salaries to the teachers, and the government will surely take necessary action on them.
