PANAJI: The Goa government on Tuesday withdrew a circular making parents' consent mandatory for children to attend classes in the offline mode. In a new circular issued during the day, state education director Bhushan Savaikar requested heads of government, government-aided, unaided pre-primary, primary, secondary, higher secondary and special schools to not insist on parents' consent for students to physically attend classes.
The new circular has come days after parents raised objections to the consent forms, which institutions were getting signed from them. All educational institutions have begun physical classes from last week after the number of COVID-19 cases dropped drastically in the coastal state. Savaikar said that the circular withdrawing the requirement of consent from parents has been issued with the approval of the competent authority.
