These days, a lot of traffic is being affected in Bengaluru. The schools of such children are also affected. Due to this, there is a possibility of change in the timings of schools in Bengaluru. The education department is considering revising school timings across the city in this regard. For this, he will organize a meeting to discuss with all the schools on October. The Department of School Education and Literacy is planning to advance school timings by half an hour to an hour to reduce congestion on roads in the city, following a suggestion by the Karnataka High Court.
Parents and school associations concerned
However, concerns are being raised by parents and school associations over the change in school schedule. Currently, most schools in Bengaluru start around 8.30 am, but the department is mulling over advancing the timing by 30 minutes to 60 minutes. Parents and guardians are expressing concern about the health and mental condition of the students. According to media reports, instead of changing the school timings, parents, schools and other guardians have suggested deploying more police personnel in major traffic areas near schools to help reduce congestion on the roads.
Education Department will hold a meeting
The Karnataka Education Department will hold a meeting tomorrow on October 5 with the private schools association, school vehicles association and parents to discuss the school timings. The Karnataka High Court had raised this issue while hearing a PIL last month. A bench of Chief Justice Prasanna Varale and Justice Krishna Dixit said in the order that the state government convene a meeting of stakeholders, including representatives of private and public institutions, school bus operators and parent associations, to discuss the change in school timings to reduce traffic. Can call a meeting. Keep in mind the safety and security of children.
