The Delhi Government is in discussion with School Principals to reopen schools in the national capital. The Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia stressed about the learning gap among children that is occurring due to online learning. It is important to reopen schools for social-emotional wellbeing.
“We have to bridge the loss of learning as well as cater to the mental and socio-emotional wellbeing of children. Our children and teachers have gone through a harrowing phase of Covid and we need to get them out of that phase,” Sisodia said.
However, the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) has already allowed students of Class 10 and 12 to visit schools for admission related work and practical activities for board exams from Monday.
Infact, parents are of the opinion that the students should be allowed to come to schools as it has caused terrible damage to children’s education. Many schools are also starting training on reducing the learning gap of the students and reconnecting with them once schools reopen.
