Bengaluru, Jan 03 2020 : Sources in the primary and secondary schools across the state revealed to DH that they have already started preparing question papers and time tables for the school-level examinations in the second week of February.
The state government’s prolonged silence over holding public exams for 7th standard from the current academic year has left lakhs of parents anxious and agitated. While the schools, in the absence of a government directive, have begun preparations to hold school-level examinations in February, parents have warned the government that they may have to knock on the doors of the High Court if the government suddenly decides to conduct public exams at this juncture.
Meanwhile, the department of public instruction has also recommended to the state government not to hold public exam for 7th standard. Interestingly, this recommendation was submitted to the state government a fortnight ago just after a meeting of the education minister with department officials and representatives of the Karnataka State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (KSCPCR). The fact that nothing is sure in govt dealings is a great damper for the ordinary public.
