Schools reopen across J&K

Schools in Kashmir reopened yesterday after remaining shut for nearly seven months following the abrogation of Article 370. Officials of the Jammu and Kashmir education department said all arrangements had been put in place for the students to attend schools after the institutions remained shut for months since August after scrapping of its special status and due to winter break. The government had made several efforts last year to reopen the schools in a phased manner, but it failed to bear any fruit as the parents kept their wards at home due to apprehensions about their safety. Towards the end of the year, few schools opened, but students were asked to attend classes without wearing school uniforms.
