During the coronavirus pandemic, 2,500 parents in Delhi made a representation to the office of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal. They urged him not to reopen schools this year.
Parents mailed to the CMO and expressed their concern for their children studying in schools. They requested the Delhi CM not to resume offline classes this academic year.
DELHI CM SHOULD REOPEN SCHOOLS AFTER ZERO COVID-19 CASES
The email that CMO received includes short inputs and views of around 2,498 parents. Almost everybody is not ready to send their kids to school this year.
One of the parents said that schools should resume offline classes when there would be a cure for the virus. Moreover, there should be zero COVID-19 cases for at least 10 days.
DELHI CM WOULD NOT REOPEN SCHOOLS TILL OCTOBER 31
The guidelines of Unlock 5 are released. In those guidelines, the Ministry of Home Affairs has permitted the schools to reopen after October 15. However, the state governments and administration of union territories would take this decision.
The Education Minister Manish Sisodia already announced on October 4 that schools in Delhi will remain closed till October 31 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
DELHI CM CANNOT TAKE THE RISK OF STUDENTS LIFE
Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said that he understands the situation of parents as he is a parent too. He said that at this point of time he cannot take risk of the health of children. Earlier, the Delhi Government said that students can come to school if they need any help from teachers. Later, it clearly said that schools will not be partially open.
In India, all the schools and other educational institutions are shut down since March 16 to avoid the spread of coronavirus.
