Union Ministry of Education has issued modified guidelines on the reopening of educational institutions in different parts of the country. As per new rules, Centre has allowed states to decide if parental consent is needed by school students to attend physical classes. Previously, the guidelines mandated parents to provide written consent if they wish to send their children to school.
The modified guidelines also focused on the smooth transition from online to classroom learning by preparing bridge courses, focusing on students who need extra interventions, ensuring that every student reads books beyond those in the syllabus, and implementing remedial programmes.
