Gujarat Education Minister Bhupendra Singh Chudasama said on Monday that his department would take everyone's opinion before making any final decision on the opening of schools in the state. Speaking to reporters in Gandhinagar, Chudasama indicated that the schools cannot be closed for long.
Schools and colleges have been closed since the Kovid-19 epidemic. Many educational institutions are taking online classes and examinations while continuing the academic session. "It has been six months since schools were closed due to coronavirus," Chudasama said. We will have to open schools at some point or the other. But the state government will not take this important decision of its own accord. ''
The minister said that the most important opinion about the opening of schools would be from the Ministry of Health. He said, "In the coming days we will take the opinion of family members, students, school owners, teachers, and prominent academics." The opinion of the Health Department will be important in this regard. ”The minister said that he would hold discussions with Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel and the entire cabinet before taking a final decision on opening the school.
