A day after Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha assured a policy in 48 hours to ease the burden of homework on school kids, the management on Tuesday came out with fresh rules limiting daily online classes to half-an-hour for pre-primary students and 90 minutes for primary and middle students.
The plans came within 24 hours of Mr. Sinha's instructions to the school education division to come out with a rule in 48 hours after a video of a six-year-old girl went viral on social media in which she appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ease the burden of homework on the school kids.
He said in the case of the pre-primary students, the communication with their teachers on a given day shall be only of half-an-hour and also asked the teachers to avoid assigning homework to students of classes up to 5.
For the senior students, the teachers have been asked to give a 10-15 minutes break between two consecutive classes for the students to freshen up, relax and re-energise themselves to focus on the next class.
