Delhi’s Chief Deputy Minister Manish Sisodia said Wednesday that the government is brainstorming how the first schools in the national capital can be reopened.
“Brainstorming has started on how the first schools in Delhi can be reopened, especially for the board classes, as the exam dates have already been announced,” he said while addressing a press conference.
Sisodia also said that “our future strategy (on reopening schools) will depend on how early a COVID-19 vaccine is available to the public after frontline workers are vaccinated.”
Schools in the national capital have been closed since March last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While some states have partially reopened schools, the Delhi government had announced that schools will not reopen until a vaccine is available.
Sisodia announced that the Delhi government is hosting an international education conference from January 11-17 on what the education sector should look like in a post-COVID world.
