NURPUR, AUGUST 29

The Himachal Pradesh Independent School Association has appealed to the government to allow the opening of schools with specified Standard-Operating Procedures (SOPs).

Dr Gulshan Kumar, president of the association, said here today that education had an important role to play in shaping the future of the students, who had suffered due to Covid. After sitting at homes, attending online classes, their behaviour had witnessed a drastic change.

The association asserted that as per New Education Policy, the CBSE had changed the examination pattern for classes X and XII with the optical mark reader (OMR) sheet method.

“The examination for the first term will be conducted in November with the new examination pattern but the students are not acquainted with the method. It is the high time that schools were opened in the first week of September so that the students can learn the OMR method,” he said.

Dr Gulshan said Punjab and Haryana had opened schools and the state government should also follow these. He said the pandemic had also taken a toll on the earnings of private schools.
