Schools to work for half-a-day from March 15

Hyderabad: The Telangana School Education Department has decided to restrict school timings to half-a-day from March 15.
In the wake of the demand of the school teachers association to reduce the school hours owing to soaring temperature in various parts of the State, the Department of School Education conceded the demand on Friday evening in a meeting convened by Deputy Chief Minister incharge of School Education Kadiyam Srihari along with representatives of the government teachers association at the Secretariat.
As per the revised timings, classes for six subjects will be held from 8 am to 12.30 pm. Students will be provided with an interval of 20 minutes from 10 to 10.20 am. Though the new academic year is scheduled to be held from March 21 to April 23, several teacher unions have opposed the government’s move. (NSS)
