Telangana government caps weight on school bags
Hyderabad (Telangana) [India], July 22 (ANI): The Telangana Education Department has passed a new government order which caps the weight of school bags for students in primary schools. According to the order, no student up to class five should be carrying bags weighing more than five kilos.
This new order has been welcomed by faculties from the teaching sector.
While speaking to ANI, Manjulatha Narra, the principal of a government school said, "It's a very good decision and all schools should implement it. Private schools give lot of work, so they should implement this. In our schools, we have digital classrooms where they are learning easily," hinting at digital classrooms will replace heavy school bags.
Naina, a primary school teacher, said, "As a teacher, I'm in for this motion as this will help students health wise. We have tiny kids in the class and the bags weigh more than then at times."
Telangana has 42,632 private and government schools. (ANI)
