Itanagar, Jan 28 (UNI): The Private Schools and Children Welfare Association (PS&CWA) of Arunachal Pradesh on Friday urged the state government to allow offline classes from February 1.
With schools, both government and private, already shut from January 12-31 owing to a sudden spurt in Covid-19 cases, the association president Yowa Bullet claimed that schools were yet to complete the syllabi whilst the Education Department has already declared that examinations for classes V and VIII will commence from February 17.
Bullet appealed to the state government to allow them resume the offline classes and help them cover the syllabi ahead of the examinations. While fervently appealing that permission be given to reopen the schools like that of Mumbai, Maharashtra and neighbouring Assam, where offline classes are going on in spite of “high positivity rate as compared to Arunachal Pradesh”.
“We assure the government that classes will be conducted shiftwise that too with consent from parents. While the state government has directed us to complete 100 percent syllabus of classes V and VIII ahead of the exams,” he said.
