NPSC Urges Unconditional Reopening Of Schools

New Delhi: The National Progressive Schools’ Conference (NPSC), with over 120 private schools in Delhi as its members, has urged Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal via a letter and sought unconditional reopening of schools at the earliest.

“The COVID contagion has drastically impacted students’ skills and competencies in writing due to long period of school closure. Reading and writing are foundational skills in primary years of learning which sadly our students are being deprived of for the last two years. The need of the hour is to provide maximum opportunities for holistic development and school is the ideal place to forge this,” NPSC Chairperson, Sudha Acharya, was quoted as saying in the letter by news agency PTI.

“The choice of catering to both online mode and normal school is not only a hindrance in delivering quality education but has also overburdened the teaching fraternity. This is somehow compromising with our vision of making education inclusive, leaving no one behind,” the chairperson added.

Acharya is also principal of the ITL Public School, Dwarka. “We humbly request you to kindly provide unconditional reopening of schools for complete learning remediation. Once children return back to school, we can track in detail the progress as well as the uniqueness of each learner in the cognitive, affective, socio-emotional, and psychomotor domains,”

After a long closure, Delhi schools reopened for Classes IX to XII on February 7, while nursery to Class VIII reopened on February 18.
