Teachers and management are of the opinion that due to online classes, students’ physical strength as well as their social interactions are adversely affected.

Muthu Ramalingam, principal of AMRP Higher Secondary School, Madurai, told IANS, “Children have no social contact and are working online because they are the only interface machine. This affects them socially and there is no physical activity.” Frustration will come. I strongly advise reopening schools for at least standard 12 students. ”

The state government is likely to take a decision after a high-level meeting scheduled in a few days, with calls coming from different quarters to start schools in Tamil Nadu.
