Telangana government is looking into the possibility of reopening schools at the earliest which were shut down since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, said Minister Harish Rao. The minister distributed groceries and other essential items for nearly 1,000 school teachers with the collaboration of Sai Annapurna trust on Saturday.
Harish Rao also gave away 3,000 health kits to the teachers with his own money. "All the countries in the world are suffering financially due to the pandemic," said Rao citing to the financial loss of the private teachers due to the shut down of educational institutions.
He said that all the public educational institutions and private schools have been closed leaving the employers with no money for the teachers and the government is looking for the possibility of reopening the private schools in the state.
Earlier, the government decided to reopen the schools from second week of December and run the classes for schools and colleges for about 120 days for the academic year 2020-21. However, no decision has been taken yet by the government.
