Will the state government consider the task force’s suggestion?
MUMBAI: The state government’s education department had on August 17 announced that schools would be set up in all the areas where the corona restriction was relaxed, following the fact that the number of corona was declining in the state. However, the task force has warned the state government not to start school till the end of September.
The decision to lockdown is based on oxygen criteria, the task force said in response to the MNS letter. The MNS had asked whether it was possible to start school two days a week in two groups of children. In response, the task force issued these instructions.
The task force instructed the state government not to start schools in the state till the end of September, citing the threat of a possible third wave of corona. MNS general secretary Sandeep Deshpande asked some questions about the various restrictions imposed by the state government on the background of Corona. The letter was sent to Sanjay Oak. On which Dr. Oak answered in writing and made some things more clear. Therefore, it will be important to see whether the state government will reconsider the task force’s warning.
Meanwhile, while the picture of schools is not clear, the state government has shown readiness to start colleges there. A few days back, Uday Samant, the state’s higher and technical education minister, had made a suggestive statement that colleges would be started in the state. He had said that the idea was to start colleges between September 15 and October 1. Meanwhile, students and parents will be watching to see if the Education Minister and the Education Department will reconsider the situation and take precautionary measures against schools and colleges in view of the third wave of corona that has been raging in the state for the past few days.
