Jalandhar, September 4

Online education has come with problems of its own. In a new revelation, it has been found that many government school students have been attempting to jump to a higher class, breaking the class continuity and attending online classes with their seniors. Such cases have especially come at government schools which have seen higher fresh enrollment recently.

The authorities of several government schools in Jalandhar said they had found a few cases of this nature. The school principals said as many parents were approaching them for admission, they were giving provisional admission to children till the time they furnished their previous records.

Later, during regular admission, as they sought details of previous schools and verified the same through the Aadhaar-linked accounts, they found instances where parents attempted to promote their children to a class one year higher than the standard they should have ideally gone to.

Maninder Thukral, Principal of Government Junior Model School, Jalandhar, said, "I have come across three such instances where parents attempted to promote their child to a class a level higher than he should have ideally gone to. A parent, whose ward should have ideally gone to Class IX, got him enrolled in Class X and all this while, he had been taking classes with Class X students. When we were to send his registration for the board examination, we sought his result card for Class IX.

He admitted that he never went to Class IX and was directly jumping to Class X from Class VIII." She pointed out that there were similar two cases in lower classes.
