No Students Will Be Forced: Manish Sisodia On Delhi Schools Reopening
When schools reopen in Delhi for physical classes, no student will be forced to come, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said, adding that students will be allowed to attend online classes, if they want to.
The Delhi government has decided to reopen educational institutions in a phased manner, starting on September 1 for Classes 9 to 12 and for college students. Coaching classes have been permitted to start as well.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said if the situation continues to be normal and the third wave of Covid doesn’t come, all schools and colleges will be opened.
“Today, the [Covid] situation in Delhi is under control. At one time parents were also worried… but now parents are saying that schools should be opened at the earliest so that students can continue their studies,” Mr Kejriwal said.
