After months, schools in Tripura reopened on Monday for classes 10 and 12.
Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath visited schools and colleges in the capital, Agartala to inspect the preparedness and response of the students. On the first day, around 50 per cent of the students turned up for classes.
“It was decided to open schools and colleges. Reopening of schools became essential for class 10th and 12th students ahead of their board exams. I visited some of the schools to check the preparedness, I also visited women’s college here and the arrangements there were also satisfactory. Teachers were also present in good strength,” said Nath.
Students were positive about returning to schools with as many as 50 per cent students turning up on Day 1.
