It will resume in Maharashtra from Monday. Schools will be open district-wise from January 24. Initially schools will be started in Mumbai, Nashik, Thane, Nandurbar and Jalgaon. Authorities are already making arrangements in this regard. Schools will also open from January 26 in Nagpur and January 27 in Dhule. No decision has been taken on the opening of schools in Pune and Ahmednagar. The Mumbai Municipal Corporation has issued several guidelines on the opening of schools. Students attending classes must obtain a permission letter from their parents. Students will not be allowed in the school if they have their permission. However, it seems that the parents of the students are not willing to send their children to schools there. A survey conducted by an organization in the wake of the resumption of schools found that more than half of parents are not ready to send their children into slavery. The online community platform Local Circle polled 4976 people in various cities across the state. Sixty-two percent of those surveyed said they were not ready to send their children to school from Monday. Only 11 percent agreed to send their children to school. Another 11 percent could not express any actual opinion. The Maharashtra government on January 8 ordered the closure of all schools and colleges in the state till February 15 due to the increase in cases in the state due to the spread of Omicron variant. However, on January 20, the state education minister announced that schools in classes 1 to 12 in the state would be reopened from January 24. Maharashtra has the highest number of cases. According to official figures, 46,393 new Kovid cases were registered in the state on Saturday. With so many corona cases, there is widespread concern about the reopening of schools.
