“April 12 is the likely date for the opening of schools, with the use of self test and all other measures of protection against cornavirus,” Deputy Education Minister Zetta Macri said today.
“Our task is to open all levels of education. However, infectious disease experts recommend a gradual return to regular training, ”Ms Macri added in an interview with Thema 104.6.
Recall that the self test will be conducted by both teachers and students.
According to the information, one of the scenarios for the opening of schools, which combines several possibilities, is the plan of two “waves” (δυο “κύματα”): gymnasiums and lyceums will be opened first, and only then – primary classes.
As for the state exams, the deputy minister explained that the Ministry of Education is studying all the proposed scenarios, but at the moment it is difficult to say anything definite in advance, since the final decision has not yet been made. “It is known for sure, only that they will take place on time,” said Ms. Macri.
Regarding distance learning, officials said: “Everything is going well, but e-learning cannot replace classroom learning. Apparently it will remain as an additional education. “
