Delhi Primary Schools: Remain closed till Nov 8 due to pollution

Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, declared the weekend shutdown of primary schools and outdoor activities for pupils in grades six and up.

Arvind Kejriwal, the Delhi chief minister, stated in a news conference that primary schools in Delhi will remain closed starting tomorrow due to the “bad” air quality. The AAP administration also announced the suspension of outdoor sports for kids in grades higher than Class 5.

In light of the severe air pollution, the BJP administration urged on Friday that the AAP government order the closure of schools in the capital. Shehzad Poonawala, the party’s national spokesperson, said the AAP government should stop playing with the lives of the children and close the schools while speaking at a press conference at the Delhi BJP office.

On Wednesday, the Capital government was urged by the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) to close schools until the capital’s air quality improved. Central Pollution Control Board data indicate that Delhi’s air quality remained “severe” on Thursday.

The principal of DPS Indirapuram, Sangeeta Hajela, stated that air pollution has gotten out of control, particularly during this season. While some parents in Delhi favoured the idea of closing schools due to the capital’s deteriorating air quality, others opposed it out of concern that it would further harm education, which had already been hampered by the Covid pandemic.

According to a formal order, all schools in Noida and Greater Noida have been requested to hold classes online for children up to Class 8 till November 8. This is due to the National Capital Region’s growing pollution.
