No school in Delhi can deny admission to a child on the ground of declaring the name of just one parent, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia announced on June 28. This assumes significance from the point of view of children who have lost one or both parents to COVID.


"No school in Delhi shall deny admission to a child on grounds that the child is declaring name of his or her single parent only," Sisodia tweeted. An order to this effect has also been issued by the Directorate of Education.

Earlier, on June 26, Sisodia who holds charge of the education department reiterated that schools would remain closed until the situation of the pandemic eases but the engagement between teachers and students would resume immediately, using online and semi-online approach.
