When and how are schools going to reopen after lockdownNow that there is slight relaxation in lockdown in some states this has become a topic of the main discussion these days, at least in governmental circles and media.
It is everyone's knowledge that the Education sector and students are fully affected due to lockdown all over the world. In India, it almost coincides with summer vacation. Hence the impact was not felt in a great way or people did not mind this in front of other more priorities.
The school academic year at least in Southern states is to start by June. It was a tradition in Kerala to reopen schools by 2nd June, in any case in the first week of June itself. Now it is less than a fortnight for that. There SSLC exam, the Higher Secondary Exam is not fully over. I read in newspapers that govt has readied the time-table to finish the uncompleted exams before May end. It has also decided to start the new admission process for schools from 18 th May onwards.
I think this is an apt topic for us to discuss the various issues involved in a comprehensive view from across all states. What are the precautionary measures or rearrangements needed? How can they be implemented and complied with?
When and how to reopen the schools?
