Finally, several states have taken the decision to reopen physical schools. In some states, schools have reopened in October, including the primary classes, whereas in some states they will reopen in November. Various measures are being taken by different states for the reopening of schools in offline mode. The Uttar Pradesh government has taken a decision to transfer money to the bank accounts of the parents of grades 1 to 8 students studying in government schools for procuring uniforms, school bags, and other school-related items. Rajasthan government will be providing free school uniforms to the students of grades 1 to 8 in government schools. Karnataka government resumed the Mid-Day Meal scheme from October 21. Most programs are focused on bridging the learning gap in students which has resulted due to the prolonged closure of schools during the pandemic-imposed lockdown.
In this edition, we have included topics covering the Vir Gaatha Project of CBSE to celebrate Gallantry Award winners, Calcutta High Court’s directive for payment of full fees by the students, ‘Desh ke Mentors’ programme launched by Delhi Chief Minister, ‘Education at Doorstep’ project by Tamil Nadu government, Formation of National Steering Committee (NAC) for Implementation of NIPUN Bharat Mission, and the government of Karnataka’s decision to conduct two rounds of CET (Common Entrance Test) for appointment of government school teachers.
