Thiruvananthapuram: The department of general education, Kerala, has issued a circular to strictly prohibit classes during summer vacation in schools. The action has been taken after receiving several complaints regarding the ongoing classes in high school and higher secondary departments in various schools in the state.
The department directed the education directors to ensure that no classes are being conducted at government, aided, unaided and vocational higher secondary schools in the month of May. The schools following other syllabus are also instructed to abide by the order.
Though the state government had released a similar order in 2017, many educational institutions violated the directives and carried out classes on vacation.
The latest order has warned strict action against the school authorities and teachers who hold classes in May. However, the teachers in many schools are likely to conduct online classes prior to the reopening of schools in June.
