Bengaluru: The Karnataka government on Wednesday announced setting up an expert panel to frame guidelines for primary and secondary education for the year 2021-22.

The committee will oversee the assessment models, online education, offline education, teacher training methodology, pragmatic utilization of budgetary resources, and many other related issues, the Minister for Primary and Secondary Education Minister said in a statement.

According to him, the committee will comprise eminent educationists, representatives from the Indian Institute of Science, NIMHANS, child specialists, members of the Technical Advisory Committee on COVID, eminent health experts apart from officers and representatives of parents, private schools, and teachers associations.

The implementation of the National Education Policy (NEP) in letter and spirit will be on the top of the agenda during the ensuing academic year, he said.

Kumar also said dependents of government and government-aided school teachers who died on COVID duty will get financial assistance from the Teachers Benefit Fund.

”As they (teachers) are at the forefront of delivering their responsibilities, it has been decided to put up a proposal to the health department to term them as COVID warriors and provide them priority in administering the covid vaccine,” Kumar said.

The process of teacher recruitment would be expedited by completing the formality of cadre and recruitment amendment as early as possible.

He also said textbooks will reach children in two months’ time.
