In a meeting on Thursday last week, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan mulled over making schooling a five-day affair. If approved, over a million Kendriya Vidyalaya (KV) students across the country could soon enjoy an extended weekend. This is aimed at allowing students to “pursue self-learning” and follow their passion and indulge in non-academic activities. Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan heads felt that five-day week would give “space” to children who, for years, merely get an off on Sundays besides the second Saturday of the month. The KVs outside India, in Iran, Moscow and Khatmandu, work for five days.

Most teachers acknowledged that such an arrangement would also reduce their work stress. Private CBSE schools too follow a five-day work schedule.
