Teachers seek reopening of educational institutes in Patiala district

Tribune News Service

Patiala, January 20

Teachers have demanded reopening of schools and colleges in the district.

The Democratic Teachers’ Front today termed the decision of the administration to keep the educational institutions shut as unreasonable and unscientific. The front stated that the decision to extend the restriction on functioning of colleges and schools till January 25 was affecting the education of youngsters in the region. It stated that the Omicron variant of Covid-19 spread rapidly but was less detrimental to the patient’s health in comparison with the previous variants.

“Even World Bank has stated that the closure of schools and other educational institutions is not necessary, but the administration is pushing children towards lack of education,” said Atinderpal Singh Ghagga and Harvinder Rakhra of the front. —
