Madhya Pradesh Introduces 'Bag Less School' Initiative

Why in News?

The Madhya Pradesh government has announced 'bag less school' day once a week for students in classes 1 to 12, starting from the upcoming academic session in 2024-25. This decision applies to all government and private schools operating in the state.

Key Points

  • The state government, aiming to alleviate the burden on students, has issued a notice outlining the maximum permissible weight of school bags for different classes.
    • The weight of school bags for students in classes 11 and 12 will be determined by the school management committee based on the students' respective streams.
  • The initiative includes a designated 'bag less school' day each week, during which students are encouraged to engage in recreational activities such as games, sports, cultural programs, and music.
  • The aim is to ensure that school is not perceived as a source of stress for students but rather a source of joy.
    • Strict instructions have been issued to schools to adhere to the new school bag policy from the commencement of the academic session in 2024-25.
