Bihar School News: All the educational institutions across the country have been shut even before the nationwide lockdown came into effect in the last week of March 2020. As the threat of the pandemic had been increasing steadily, state governments decided to extend the shutdown of the schools for the time being. This had an effect on the students because they were designed to continue their studies using whatever resources are available to them. But in the latest guidelines issued by the central government, indications have been given that educational activities might resume from the second phase of the unlock.
This has prompted the concerned authorities in Bihar to start working towards the resumption of the educational activities in the state. Mr. Giriwar Dayal, Director of Secondary Education, Bihar has issued letters to all District Education Officers in this regard. All DEOs have been instructed to get in touch with the concerned stakeholders which includes students, parents, teachers, guardians, and school administration, and gather their feedback regarding the resumption of the classroom sessions across the schools in the state of Bihar.
