Let schools reopen for younger kids: Delhi child rights body urges LG



Chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Protection of Child Rights (DCPCR) Anurag Kundu has written to Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, urging him to issue necessary directions to reopen schools and anganwadis, citing learning loss. “Delhi’s Covid infection spread has shown remarkable decline and has been constantly under 40 for the past six weeks. Similarly, most days witnessed zero fatality in the past six weeks. Consequently, nearly all sectors have opened up ranging from offices, workshops, to cinema halls, markets, gyms and parks. Clearly children not attending school cannot keep safe since the adults are moving about and returning home. As it is, children are visible everywhere in public places… It, therefore, remains unclear as to what extra vulnerability would children experience by coming to school or how they remain safer by not attending it,” the letter stated.
