Today, Education Ministers Will Meet To Discuss The Covid-19 Situation

Islamabad: The Inter-Provincial Education Ministers Conference (IPEMC) will be held today (Wednesday) to discuss the COVID-19 situation in schools after the resumption of in-person learning in Islamabad and Punjab on Monday.

Shafqat Mahmood, the Federal Minister of Education and Vocational Training, will preside over the meeting.

The participants will address the commencement of the new academic year, reopening of schools in light of the current COVID-19 outbreak, and vaccination of schoolteachers and other staff members, according to the federal education ministry. Actions to improve inclusive and responsive education performance, as well as funding, collaboration, and reporting, will be discussed.

Last week, the government decided not to extend school summer vacation and said all schools would reopen on August 2. It was decided that the examinations for the grade 9 and 10 would be held as per schedule.

Meanwhile, in Sindh, all exams were suspended after the lockdown was imposed in the province on July 31. The education department will now announce new dates after the restrictions are lifted.
