The Maharashtra government is contemplating shifting school timings to 9 am for students up to Class 2 in the next academic year to prioritize their sleep. A committee, comprising pediatricians and educational experts, has been formed to provide recommendations on the matter. The proposed change aims to balance rest for students and promote a holistic approach to education, emphasizing extracurricular activities over excessive homework. Governor Ramesh Bais supports the initiative to address the impact of late-night schedules on children's sleep. The final decision awaits committee recommendations, with the potential implementation in the upcoming academic year.
