Mysuru: Parents oppose Govt’s decision to convert schools as CCCs - 2 min read

Mysuru: The District Administration’s decision to convert Navodaya School as Covid Care Centres (CCCs) has evoked opposition from parents of students.

Following the spike in Covid cases, the Kodagu District Administration has converted Navodaya school as CCC in the year 2020 itself. Since then, the school was not open to students. The school authorities prepared to open schools for students last month, but the District Administration decided to convert it as CCC to tackle Covid third wave.

More than 50 parents on Tuesday January 19 met Deputy Commissioner in Madikeri and submitted requisition in this regard.

Speaking to NewsKarnataka, a parent C. K.  Rajiv Kushalappa said that the administration converted the Navodaya School as it is in Galibeedu outskirts of Madikeri City and has beds and toilets.

However, not attending classes for two years has hampered students’ education. The State syllabus students get the tuition under Vidyagama Project introduced by State Education Department but Navodaya School is teaching CBSE syllabus and hence there is no tuition. He said that the District Administration should convert Kalyana mantapas, and community halls, as CCCs by not considering Navodaya School for CCCs. He said more than 600 students are studying in Navodaya School and it is a question of their future.

The parents of Archery and Fencing Sports School in Santhemarahalli in Chamarajanagara Taluk also has raised objections to converting the school to CCC.
