Primary school Reopen News Today 1 to 8 February

Schools across the country have been closed since mid-March, even before the coronaviruslockdown was imposed. On Monday (October 5), the Education Ministry issued guidelines for their reopening.

When are schools reopening?

The Union government has permitted the reopening of schools in phases after October 15. However, the actual timing and manner of reopening will be decided by individual states.

This means what students actually experience will vary depending on where they go to schooWhen are schools reopening? What changes for students amid Covid-19?

For instance, Delhi has decided against bringing back students until the end of the month, despite the union government’s go-ahead. Uttar Pradesh, on the other hand, has announced a phased reopening, but has left the final decision to the districts, based on the local Covid-19 situation.

So, do younger children go back to the classroom first, or do the older ones?

This too, has been left to the discretion of the state governments.

According to senior officers in the Education Ministry, the union government had already indicated its preference last month, when the Home Ministry permitted senior students of Classes 9 to 12 to meet their teachers in schools voluntarily.

However, if a state were to decide to bring back the youngest students first, the Education Ministry will not interfere, a senior officer told The Indian Express.
