A Class XII student from Delhi has moved Supreme Court seeking directions to the Centre and States to consider and take a time-bound decision with regard to the physical re-opening of schools and conduct of offline teaching.

The petitioner Amar Prem Prakash is aggrieved by the indecision and vacillation on the part of the Union Government and several State Governments and Union Territories in the country, including the NCT of Delhi, in the matter of re-opening of schools and resumption of physical classes with adequate safeguards.
The plea filed through Advocate Ravi Prakash Mehrotra has sought to raise the issue of deprivation and ill-effects, both psychological and actual, of school children being kept away from attending their schools physically and having to join their classes virtually instead.
It has been pointed out that in many cases, it is not possible for economically deprived students to attend virtual classes and have to take resort to private tuitions or coaching, or manual remunerative work in the absence of regular schooling to make ends meet.
The plea has argued that the student community of India, are not being afforded access to their schools and educational institutions, in as much as offline teaching continues to remain suspended in several states of the country, thereby resulting in a denial of the exalted principles enshrined in Articles 14 and 21 read with Article 21A of the Constitution of India.
