  • After drawing flak over the proposal to conduct public examination for Class VII, the Department of Primary and Secondary Education is unlikely to go ahead with the plan for the current academic year.
  • The Karnataka State Commission for Protection of Child Rights had issued a notice to the department over plans to conduct a public exam for Class VII as it was against the mandate of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 and other constitutional provisions.
  • The commission had mooted a regular exam conducted in the classroom by the subject teacher in a child-friendly environment instead.
