The decision to not re-open the schools has been taken after detailed consultations with the states and the union territories. The state governments and officials expressed their apprehensions regarding the reopening of schools as the threat of COVID-19 cases would rise exponentially, once the educational institutions are re-opened. The decision on reopening of schools would be taken only after consultations with various stakeholders and assessment of the situation.

 Government Explains The Rationale Behind The Decision

When questioned about the decision of foreign countries to gradually re-open the schools, the senior officials from the government explained the reason behind the decision to not open the schools in India. A senior officer stated that, “Indian schools are not merely the sophisticated larger brick structures – they are also these small schools where students huddle together in small villages.

As such, opening schools may simply lead to an exponential increase in the already rapidly increasing number of cases.” Unless the spread of the pandemic comes under control, the government will be wary of reopening the schools and colleges as social distancing would be difficult to implement in these places. 

Safety of the students is paramount

While many schools in Europe and China are gradually returning to normalcy, Indian administration is still apprehensive regarding the reopening of the schools and has put the safety of students as paramount. While undoubtedly the loss of the academic year is a serious matter, it cannot compare with the importance of the safety of the students.
