Vacations in Mumbai schools

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

Requesting the education board to consider the situation faced by Mumbai parents of school going kids during the monsoons each year. The schools cannot directly declare holidays for every rainy day. And we parents are in a dilemma everyday whether to send the kids to school or no, in the heavy rain, especially if some tests or assessments are scheduled. Hence the authorities should look into the matter and consider shifting the school vacations instead of April-May to June-July. It will be in the interest of all concerned. The schools will not have to compromise on their requirement of yearly working days and the students will not have to suffer while travelling in water logged areas in the heavy downpour. Further the teachers will not be under undue pressure to make up for the lost teaching hours and complete portions in a rush.
