The Education Department has been conducting teacher training, which has become a cause of panic among teachers.

A government school teacher said: “The PISA seminar, which is being conducted by the Education Department, violates the Covid guidelines. Did the department take an approval of the Adviser before organising such a seminar and gathering more than 200 teachers at a venue?”

Current wave more infectious, but less fatal, say doctors in Chandigarh

Rubinderjit Singh Brar, Director of School Education, UT, said: “This training is being undertaken by the CBSE as per the directions of the Ministry of Education for PISA-2021. All necessary protocols will be followed and teachers will be called in small groups.” — TNS
