  • Corona cases are expected to drop to less than 11,000 in Delhi today
  • The rate of positivity in the capital has been steadily declining for the last three times
  • If there are less cases in Maharashtra, schools will be reopened from January 24

New Delhi: CM Kejriwal is preparing to end the weekend curfew after the number of corona cases decreased in Delhi. The Chief Minister has sent a recommendation to Governor Anil Baijal for this. However it has not yet been approved by LG.

In such a situation, the question arises in the minds of parents when schools will open in the capital. Apart from this, there is also a question in the minds of the people whether the final examination of the children will be held in the school or not. According to sources, the school is not likely to start in January. A related proposal has not been sent to LG.

Online study is still going on in Delhi
Amid speculation of reduction in Kovid’s case in Maharashtra, the Maharashtra government has taken a big decision to open schools and has crossed the line. Schools are opening in other parts of the state, including Mumbai, from January 24. However, an online study is currently underway in Delhi.

Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia said students should not stop studying even though schools were closed during the Corona period. In the online teaching-learning process for quality education to children, he has talked about paying attention to the mental and emotional health of the children along with their education.

Loss of children’s education
Sisodia said frequent school closures due to Corona have damaged students’ education. “The health of the students is very important to us,” he said. However, it is also important that children’s education does not stop.

He said that the education of children should be continued through online medium till the school closes so as to reduce the distance of learning among the children. However, he has not yet said anything about reopening the schools.

Schools expect offline exams
Amid declining corona cases, schools in the capital expect that examinations for students in Std 9 to 12 can be taken offline. The schools say that if the government eases the restrictions, they can gradually introduce students from standard 9 to 11 in schools from February.

Sudha Acharya, president of the National Progressive Schools Conference, an association of 122 schools in Delhi, said that for students in Std 9 to 12, whatever it is, we will not take online exams. We will wait for the condition of COVID to improve. We expect the situation to improve by the end of February and we will be able to reopen schools and conduct offline examinations.
