As the Delhi government prepares to roll out the COVID-19 vaccine, Deputy Prime Minister Manish Sisodia said the education department is considering when the city’s schools will open.
However, he said it would be difficult to give an exact date as it would be difficult to calculate when the vaccine would be available to the public, since front-line personnel would be the first to receive the vaccine.
“There is a brainstorming session on how to reopen the first schools in Delhi, especially for council classes, as the council exam dates have been announced. Older students must complete their practical component before their exams, which requires attending school, ”said Dit Sisodia.
The minister announced that the Delhi government is organizing an international conference on school education on January 11-17 to discuss changes in the education sector in the post-COVID-19 world.
Leading the Delhi 2021 Education Conference, the minister said 22 education experts from India and six from abroad would instruct schools on what to do after years of disruptions in the education sector. Education suffered.
“We have to plan our schools in the post-COVID period just like the COVID-19 vaccine. The pandemic has created an unprecedented situation for children. School and learning in the post-COVID time cannot go as usual, ”Sisodia announced at the conference.
The government said that an independent study by the Boston Consulting Group on the process and achievements of education reform in Delhi over the past five years will be published during the conference.
The keynote address will be delivered by Lucy Crehan, author of The Cleverlands, a global bestseller that tracks the details of five of the world’s most successful education systems.
