High time to change the academic schedule of CBSE based schools

This petition had 14 supporters

My petition is a concern for every parent whose children are studying in CBSE based curriculum schools. Our government is putting endless efforts for child education and their welfare. My concern is with its academic calendar which starts in the month of April, continues till one month and the school reopens after another one month break. The schedule goes well throughout the year with final exams being conducted in the month of March. After exams there is a 15-20 days break and then the new session once again starts in April. In the month of April, the heat waves throughout India are most intense.The children have to travel during this time which becomes a cause of numerous disease like heat stroke, fever, dysentery. The other state board schools offer vacation to their students in the month of April and May. I don't understand the logic behind beginning the new session for one month and the vacations thereafter. It gives a feeling of discontinuity with a bundle of disease for free. Can we have a better academic schedule as other state boards have?
