A major announcement has been made by the Pakistan Private Schools Federation that schools will no longer be closed due to coronavirus.
President Kashif Mirza has said that there has already been an irreparable loss of education of 75 million students because of coronavirus and due to time shortage, there will be no winter holidays.
According to him, the proposal to hold the academic year till August instead of April has also been rejected as the education, health, and safety of the children is the top priority and we will not tolerate any shortcomings in it.
The President of Pakistan Private Schools Federation said that,
“According to the declaration of the Prime Minister, Ministers of Education Conference, it has been clearly announced to keep the educational institutions open.”
He also mentioned that according to the advisory of the United Nations, UNICEF, UNESCO, and the World Bank, the schools will be kept open due to Corona’s concerns as the losses due to closure are high.
