@Mr. Human brother
At least a Few students are meeting instead of sitting in a closed environment at home.
Everything will be alright on a slow pace.
Keep Patience as this Corona has taught us many lessons and one of them is patience.

@ human

Don''t worry bro, there will be rotation plan and all the 40 children in a class will be given a chance to attend the school physically for few days in a week, by keeping the limit to 20 students per class on any given day.

@Human, Think practically before you comment such nonsense. There are different ways to handle such situations. Only 20 students are allowed in a class does not mean that the rest of the class always remain at home. There are smart and experienced people to take wise decisions, all are not like you.

I think starting the schools for students below 14 years old will not be a good idea, better continue the online class for student upto 9th std until the pandemic is controlled or open the schools only for students from 10th std and above.
Kids cannot follow all the proper safety measures. Even the adults are not bothered about that, Still lot of idiots are in the public places without mask or not using it properly.

@ Rahaman...r u again ...only 20 students in a class means those 20 only will be meeting friends and teachers and a new world... what about all the other students....they will stay home online and grow up without meeting friends and teachers and a new world !!!
20 will be normal and rest will be abnormal ??? usually there are 40 students on average in a classroom in INDIAN SCHOOLS !!!
