Bhubaneswar: The Odisha State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (OSCPCR) has urged the School & Mass Education Department to change the class timing of the schools across the State.
OSCPCR Chairperson Sandhyabati Pradhan has written a letter to the Principal Secretary of the School & Mass Education Department to change the class timing from 6 AM-9 AM to 6 AM-10 AM.
“This is to bring to your kind notice that due to the closure of schools on account of the COVID-19 pandemic, the learning outcome of students is a great concern. The Odisha government has rescheduled the timing of teaching hours in all schools from 6 AM to 9 AM with effect from May 2, 2022,” said the OSCPCR Chairperson in the letter.
“After careful consideration, the Commission recommends to reconsider the timing from 6 AM-10 AM. At the same time, quality learning as well as review of subject matter can be taken care of by teacher simultaneously,” she added.
