“The ‘social loss’ of children’s ability to navigate adult life impacts younger
in classes 1 through 5 even more deeply as initial years are very critical for socialisation. Neglecting classes 1-5 is likely to lead to much higher and devastating dropping out of

The memorandum also asks to allow them to provide inputs to the decision-makers, including the Technical Advisory Committee. The government had said that its decisions on school reopening will be based on TAC’s recommendations.
