BENGALURU: A decision on exams for classes 1-9 in the state will be made in the next two days, said minister for primary and secondary education S Suresh Kumar on Monday.
The minister was talking to media on Monday morning after the department called a meeting with all stakeholders regarding the same. Apart from education department officials, around 44 people including representatives of unaided schools, parents’ association and educationists were present at the meeting.
“Everyone was allowed to give their opinion. The unaided schools said they want to conduct the summative assessments. We will take into consideration all these before coming to a conclusion,” said Suresh Kumar.
While many other states have promoted students without exams, Karnataka is yet to take a decision on it.
The association of primary and secondary schools of Karnataka-KAMS, in a written letter, has told the department that it’s unfair on children who have been attending classes regularly not to conduct exams.
