After Central Ministry announced Unlock-1 in select areas, most of us eager to know When are schools going to be open in the state. Earlier, we heard some reports saying the schools are going to be open starting July giving proper guidelines to both the school officials and parents to follow. These guidelines include sanitization of school campuses, adequate arrangement of drinking water and hand wash, hygienic toilets with cleaning at regular interval, six feet distance between students, screening at the campus gate, masks, and schools should be run in two shifts. However, let me tell you that with all these guidelines it is not fixed yet that the schools are going to open starting July 1st.
The State Government right now is waiting for the response from the Ministry of Human Resource Development regarding opening of schools. Last week HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal has done a video conferencing with the state officials discussing about the same and that time also nothing was final.
Bihar Commission for Protection of Child Rights has also issued a detailed advisory for the safety of children’s in wake of opening schools in the state. Recently, Bihar Education Minister Krishna Nandan Verma said that the department has sought opinion from Parents and Students associated with the institution and they also are not in favour of opening schools right now and it has been decided that the further call about this matter is going to taken in the last week of June.
