The Narendra Modi Led Government has already dismissed reports saying that Schools,Colleges will be opened from September 1. Moreover, exams of final year students are to be conducted by September 30 so schools will not be opened.
A survey was conducted in which parents were asked should schools be reopened? And only 33% of parents were ready for reopening of schools and rest all parents said that if schools reopened then they will not send their children to schools. Surely STUDENT LIVES MATTER and schools should not be reopened as it is impossible to control spread of covid in schools. Many other countries like USA, Israel decided to reopen schools but they saw a sudden increase in covid cases and schools were closed again. We can learn from their experience and government should not take any risk.
NEW DELHI already said that no other state is in favour of reopening of schools due to covid, there can be some classes for senior students from September end or October but no final decision has been made.
” possibility of higher secondary classes are being explored but there has been no final decision, whenever a decision will be taken centre will issue a advisory and states have to take a call depending on covid cases”
Now the question is, ARE EXAMS MORE IMPORTANT THAN STUDENT LIVES?
Why can government just look at other countries example and why the hell they want to experiment on students. This is no time to reopen schools and it has already been made clear that this will not be a “zero year”.
Now let’s come to Final Year Student Examination, UGC said that exams have to conducted by end of September otherwise degree will not be given. Again question isEXAMS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN STUDENT LIVES??. Students have already given 7 exams not only 1 is left so why can’t they pass students on basis of average and give them degree. Students are confused because his the hell can they take exams when nothing is taught to students of final year??. A case is already in supreme court regarding this final year student examination situation and I hope that they cancel exams because ” agar bche zinda nhi rhenge to exams leke kya kroge”.
Schools should also remain closed for all the classes, just because a student is in 10th or 12th doesn’t mean he can’t be infected. I think online classes is the only solution in this pandemic and I must also say that there are some students who are very poor and they don’t have smartphones,internet connection etc so government should provide them everything they need.
Why is everyone acting like, reopening of schools is the solution of every problem?. Instead of this we should think of how to provide online classes to all the students so that no student has to take risk of going to schools.
I request to please cancel final year student’s exams and schools should not be reopened.
At least learn from mistakes of other countries.
