The date of re-opening of educational institutes is still not known. The lockdown is expected to open from May 17 to bring the economy back on track amid the Corona transition, but it will not be easy for the government to open educational institutions. It is extremely difficult to maintain social distance in educational institutions.
Experts from the Union Ministry of Home Affairs, Ministry of Human Resource Development and Union Health are creating safety guidelines. On the other hand, the government has entrusted the responsibility of making guidelines for schools to NCERT on Friday.
This guideline will be released one week before the Corona situation in the country will be corrected, when the announcement of opening of the educational institutes will be made. Based on these guidelines, the board, JEE Main, NEET exam and other examinations will also be held.
In these guidelines, guidelines will be made keeping in view the variation and climate of the country. However, the preliminary report will prohibit prayer meetings, group sports competitions, programs and seminars in educational institutions for the next one year. Apart from this, students are also required to do seating arrangement keeping in mind the social distance in school bus and classroom.
According to a senior government official, it is extremely difficult to maintain social distance whenever educational institutions open in June or July. Because it is not possible to maintain a distance of two feet or one meter from school bus to class all over the country. How school students will be prevented from sitting together in groups.
These same topics are being discussed in the meeting. Because a large population of India studies in government schools, where there are twice as many students in the 40-seat class. Hundreds of students use just one toilet. Children are also less resistant to disease, so how will students be saved?
Plans to run big schools in two shifts:
Specialists are planning to run more schools in two shifts. Here half the students are called in the morning shift and others in the second shift in class. For this, reports of per-class data, infrastructure etc. have been sought from the state governments.
Covid-19 to be included in CBSE curriculum:
According to the official, in the initial report, there has also been talk on making medical report cards to all students. In this, students and parents will have to include cleanliness and nutritious diet in the menu. They will be given this information in the parent teacher meeting. Apart from this, CBSE is going to include defense from Covid-19 in its curriculum.
