Haryana Mulls Reopening of Educational Institutions as Covid Cases Decline
Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Thursday said a plan should be made to reopen the educational institutions subject to the strict adherence of the COVID-19 protocols. “Given the decline in the number of COVID-19 cases, a plan should be made to reopen the schools at the earliest,” Khattar said.
At present, schools, colleges, and universities in Haryana are closed due to the second wave of COVID-19. “As of now, the COVID-19 curve is flattened. Therefore, while ensuring strict adherence of COVID-19, the educational institutions should be reopened at the earliest,” said the chief minister in an official release here.
The chief minister presided over a review meeting regarding the implementation of the National Education Policy(NEP) in Haryana here. Khattar said the state is already leading the way to ensure successful implementation of the 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.
