“As of now, there is no plan to scrap nursery admissions this year. We are late this year in issuing notification but it will happen,” he told reporters.
Notably, nursery students getting online classes is not that effective as being taught offline.
Sisodia also said that teachers can now not be called for COVID-19 duties.
“Considering the importance of education as well as the emergency-related Covid duties, henceforth, the district authorities may be directed not to summon the services of any teacher for any other administrative/field related work, other than Covid related duties.,” said Sisodia, who also holds the charge of the education department.
“If in any emergency situation the District Authorities feel the necessity of teachers, then prior permission of the education minister shall be mandatory.” Noting that teachers are summoned directly, Sisodia said discretion is necessary so that education activities are not seriously disrupted.
