Parent Undertaking Row before Reopening of Schools

Reopening of Schools with a direction to parents to send their wards to schools on their own risk and responsibility is sufficient enough to indicate that the decision is more provocative and less reconciliatory. Unfortunately a direction to parents to give a written undertaking  to schools heads over their willingness to send their wards to schools on their own risk and responsibility is both irritating and as well as irking.  While the fact remains that people are more concerned about the life and health safety of their children than their routine attendance in schools, the government’s direction to seek a written undertaking from parents to send their children to schools on their own risk and responsibility shows that top helmsmen tend to convey a message that health safety in schools is not their domain. While the government talks about quality education in schools, it does not have the facility of even an ordinary dispensary in the schools run by it. While the famed private schools offer the facility of well established dispensaries to children, the other private schools not run by famed educational trusts also don’t have the facility of even ordinary dispensaries. So neither the government nor the private schools other than few top ones offer even the basic healthcare facilities to children. Instead of directing the parents to give written undertakings for sending their children to schools on their own risk and responsibility the government should have directed the school heads to offer health safety kits including sanitizers and masks and immunity boosters to children.

Teachers can persuade children to adopt health safety measures more promptly than their parents. Instead of asking parents to facilitate the process of creating a health safety environment for children in schools, the government is surprisingly asking the parents to take up the responsibility of health safety of their children even during their presence in schools. Even naives can understand that teachers physically present with the children in and outside class rooms only can take care of the health safety of children during working hours .  

The Government could provide health safety kits including sanitizers and masks and immunity boosters even to private school managements for distribution among children and schools. Fact remains that that teachers can persuade children to adopt health safety measures more promptly than their parents.
