All schools within the country have been directed by the Ministry of Education to begin classes this week. While enrolment may still be happening in some schools, this should not halt the teachers from classroom teaching.
?I am instructing all schools to begin classroom teaching this week. Head teachers and school principals must adhere to the instruction. Whilst you continue with your enrolment process, you must ensure that students and teachers are in the classrooms engaged with classroom work,? directed the Minister for Education, Dr. Mahendra Reddy.
Parents have also been urged to send their school aged children to school.
?I am also requesting parents with school aged children to send their children to school. We are working towards a knowledge based society and the government is providing free education, transport assistance, free text books to assist parents. An educated population will certainly assist our nation achieve better living conditions, reduce social ills and boost our economy,? Dr. Reddy added.
Meanwhile, parents and guardians who find difficulty in enrolling their children into schools are advised to seek the assistance of the education offices closest to them.
