Due to the pandemic situation, schools remained closed and teachers and students struggled with the education system.

However, several state governments are reopening schools now. While most schools are ready to welcome students, parents are reluctant to send their children to schools for physical classes and prefer online studies until the situation improves, according to a statement from the CBSE.
