This decision was taken on Saturday following representation by the Progressive Recognised Teachers' Union. The PRTU representatives met Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and explained the hardships faced by the teaching community in conducting physical classes.

They informed the Chief Minister that even vaccination of all teachers was not yet complete. They urged the government to see that all teachers get vaccinated before deciding to reopen the schools.

They also felt that since experts and even the Centre had issued an alert regarding the third wave, it would not be advisable to reopen the schools from July 1.
