For example, the class of children of pre-primary will not exceed 30 minutes in a day. Similarly, classes I to VIII will be held in a maximum of two sessions of one and a half hour duration. Apart from this, it has also been said that the children of class 5 should not be given homework.
The girl had said this in her video
The girl had appealed to Prime Minister Modi to reduce homework through video. In the video, she had said, ‘Assalamu Alaikum Modi sahib, I am speaking a girl. I am six years old, I can talk about zoom class.
Why do 6-year-olds have more work than they are?
First English, Maths, Urdu, EVS and then Computer class. I have to attend class from 10 am to 2 pm. Older children have so much work to do.
