After remaining closed for over six months, the schools in Kashmir opened on Monday. The educational institutes had closed after restrictions and shutdown following the abrogation of Article 370 on August 5 and in between the customary three-month winter break was also announced by the government. On Monday, most schools in Srinagar were buzzing with students and parents were seen accompanying students to their schools. “Hope 2020 will be good year for us, it will be peaceful and our education doesn”t suffer,” said Iara, a Class 12 student at the Kothi Bagh higher secondary school in Srinagar.
