Calcutta High Court asks West Bengal government to take proactive steps to bring back students to schools after COVID-19

The Bench opined that the petitioner could submit his suggestions, if any, to the Commissioner of School Education.

“That apart, the Commissioner of School Education shall also call for reports from various districts as regards the students strength in the respective schools both prior and post Covid-19 pandemic and necessary steps can be taken to sensitise the parents of those children regarding the need for education. Also, steps have to be taken to provide clean atmosphere, good drinking water, mid-day meal etc. to bring back the drop out students to school,” the order stated.

The Court also called for wide publication through media and television channels of messaging that impresses upon the need for good education for children regardless of whatever strata their parents come from.

“We hope and trust that the observations made by us in this order will be taken in the right spirit and the government will take pro-active steps to the grievance expressed,” the Court observed while disposing of the PIL.
