Delhi: At PTM, parents told no plan to reopen schools, online classes to continue


At the primary parent-teacher assembly at Delhi authorities colleges because the pandemic started, parents had been told colleges received’t be reopening anytime quickly. The PTMs will continue in a staggered method until July 31 to join with parents at the beginning of this new educational session.

Last week, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal too had stated that regardless of the persevering with low variety of Covid instances within the metropolis, there are no plans for colleges to reopen proper now.

While kids returning to college for offline classes shouldn’t be on the playing cards, many parents stated they’ve been sending their kids for offline tuitions.

Rekha, whose son research at school VII at Government Boys Senior Secondary School, New Friends Colony, stated: “The teacher told us that because schools will not be opening now, we should make sure that we help him study at home and complete all the worksheets that are sent to him every week. She also said we should be careful about what we say around him, that we shouldn’t discuss household problems around him as it might upset him.”

But she feels that the restricted interactions and weekly worksheets aren’t sufficient for her son. “He is admitted in the English-medium section which is why I am not able to help him at all, and we feel like he needs more guidance with his studies. We have enrolled him in tuition classes and pay Rs 500 per month each for classes for four different subjects. It’s a lot, and work has been difficult for my husband, a daily wager,” she stated.

For Neera, it was the primary time she was assembly her daughter’s lecturers after she was admitted to Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya, East of Kailash, in KG final yr. “The teacher said that I should help my daughter study at home and submit her worksheets. I try, but I find it very difficult to make sure that she studies at home. Because of this, I started sending her to tuition classes earlier this year in our colony in Zamrudpur. The teacher teaches around four children at once and takes Rs 300 per month,” she stated.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia stated: “Despite incessant rains, the enthusiasm shown by our teachers and parents for the PTM is commendable. This shows that our parents and teachers are committed to the education of children and their social-emotional well-being. While schools are closed, education of all children should continue and every child should also get emotional support. Together, our teachers and parents can take this responsibility. I appeal to parents to ensure that they go to schools and meet the teachers of their children.”

Part of the agenda of the conferences is to introduce the CBSE’s new examination coverage for this educational yr to parents and to smoothen the transition of scholars who’ve joined authorities colleges at school VI after finishing class V in MCD colleges.
