Facility availability is not a service to students. This is their right. At a time when so much is said at the official level about childcare measures, why is this right constantly ignored.
While the huge money is being used for other purposes, the reason why a small amount is required for heating arrangements has become a big problem for the school education department and private schools.
Heating arrangements should become a permanent feature in schools and authorities should not first wait for applications to be made for this.
Classroom heating arrangements should be in place not only until schools close for the winter holidays but also for some time if required when schools reopen in March.
Sometimes during the early days of March there is a cold due to rain or even snow. So heating arrangements are also needed at that time.
