MP coaching institutes to offer free classes for students orphaned by COVID-19
The CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan said the MP government is considering allowing coaching classes to reopen following COVID-19 protocol.
NEW DELHI: President of Madhya Pradesh Coaching Honours Association Laxmi Narayan Bakoria told chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan that the association will provide free coaching and hostels for the students whose parents have died due to corona pandemic.
A delegation of the association met the chief minister at his residence on August 11. The state government is considering allowing coaching institutions to resume physical classes. The chief minister has also instructed the coaching operators to ensure 100% adherence to the Covid-19 protocols.
"Free of cost arrangements have been made for coaching and hostels by the association for the students whose parents have died due to corona pandemic," Bakoria told Chief Minister Chouhan.
Madhya Pradesh school education department also informed that the coaching institutes can operate with a maximum capacity of 50%.
The government-aided schools of Madhya Pradesh have already resumed physical classes for Classes 11 and 12 with 50 per cent attendance from July 26. Schools were also reopened for Classes 9 and 10 from August 5.
The schools have remained largely closed for more than a year because of the global pandemic. With most educational institutions shut, classes have been forced online for most students.
Because of COVID-19 pandemic all educational institutions have been closed for more than a year now and according to a parliamentary panel it has adverse effects on the students, which might impair their ability to learn. The loss of education and dropout rates of students from schools is also very high because of the lack of resources and communication channels.
The panel also suggested that the government appoint a task force responsible for structuring the reopening of schools in a phased manner ensuring social distancing norms.
