List of states reopening schools in India:
As the third Covid-19 wave appears to have achieved its peak in India, a number of Indian states, such as Haryana, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan and Telangana have decided to resume the halted academic activities in schools in the offline mode from February 1, 2022. In addition to this, major Indian cities such as Pune and Bangalore are also slated to open school doors for students.
The education sector and the learning process of the students were adversely affected yet again due to the school shutdown, owing to rapid spread of the Omicron variant of Covid-19 and thus the spike in infection rate across the country. After being non-functional in the offline mode for over a month now, schools in several states of the country are now all set to march towards normalcy by switching to offline mode again, while adhering to Covid norms.
