The students of class one and two will not be given homework as per the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE). The CBSE also said that the students shall not carry school bags, as it can have an adverse and irreversible effect on the children’s health.
“Young children whose spine is at a crucial stage of growth are the most susceptible ones to hazards such as back pain, muscle pain, shoulder pain, fatigue and in extreme cases the distortion of spinal cord or shoulders that may most plausibly be attributed to heavy school bags,” the circular said.
Do you agree with the circular? Let’s discuss.
