The second wave of COVID-19 forced the state governments to shut down the educational organizations and once again accepted the virtual mode to teach the students. However, now as the cases are deteriorating, the Haryana government is planning to re-open physical classes in schools, colleges and other educational institutions. CM Manohar Lal Khattar on Thursday asked to draw out a plan to reopen the schools at the earliest amid the strict COVID-19 protocols.
"As of now, the COVID-19 curve is flattened. Therefore, while safeguarding strict devotion of COVID-19, the educational institutions should be reopened at the earliest," Haryana CM Khattar said in an official release.
Khattar presided over a review meeting regarding the application of the National Education Policy (NEP)in Haryana.
In the review meeting, he said that the state is on the way to ensure the successful application of NEP by 2025. "Since the announcement of NEP, dedicated efforts have already been made by both the state and Central governments for spreading extensive awareness among the teachers, stakeholders, but making each child who is the real beneficiary of this policy-aware is the need of the hour," Khattar said, as reported by PTI.
He further talked about the possibility of offering foreign languages in schools in each district. He asked to open the schools with residential facilities and cluster plans.
