A section of parents in the national capital on Wednesday welcomed the Delhi government's decision to allow schools to reopen for students of classes 10 and 12, while others felt it is unsafe to resume classroom learning before a vaccine against COVID-19 is available.

The Delhi government has allowed schools to reopen for students of classes 10 and 12 from January 18. However, the government has directed that students are not bound to come and attendance is completely optional. Those welcoming the decision said that it will give students the opportunity to clarify their doubts and get into the exam mode before board exams begin in May.

"Students have been homebound for over 10 months. It's time they go out with due precautions and get into the preparatory mode," said Samvit Jha, a parent of a class-12 student and an architect by profession. According to Nimit Sharma, the Delhi government should have stuck to its earlier plan of not reopening schools till a vaccine is available.
