Bangalore CBSE school timings to be 6 hours a day

This petition had 172 supporters

As a parent of kids enrolled in CBSE School, in Bangalore, I would like to suggest the uniformity of school timings (8.15 a.m. to 2.15 p.m. )for all the classes and to standardize the total school hours to maximum 6 hours per day for all students. 

Parents including me enroll both kids (siblings) in same school with the thinking that they both will be going & coming together, as it ensures better safety & comfort of the kids. However, due to the different timings for different classes in the school, it really becomes difficult at times to manage.  

Also, if the school timings are fixed upto maximum 6 hours, it will be easy for kids to find some time for self study & relaxation. The current school timings for the secondary school are making kids extremely tiresome. They reach home between 4.30 to 5 p.m., which leaves them with very less time for self study and play. So far, I don’t see any additional benefit for spending extra time in school. In the name of extra curricular activities kids are forced to be in school, where these activities are not been taken properly in the schools. It would be better if the kids get to spend more time at home for relaxation then to spend extra hours in school. To increase the burden kids are given home work also. They need to get atleast 8 to 10 hours of sound sleep. How can they manage everything in such a less time. Most of the parents are in agreement that these timings are taking a toll on their children. 

As a parent of two kids it becomes quite easy to manage both of them if they have same school timing and also, reduced school hours can enable kids to devote some time for developing their hobbies and interests in areas apart from studies.

All those parents who agree with the aforesaid are requested to sign the petition as early as possible so that we can take it forward. 

Awaiting some positive action in this regard.
