All the educational institutions in Pakistan would reopen from September 15.
According to the details, it was decided in a meeting of all the education ministers held today; chaired by Federal Minister for Education Shafqat Mahmood.
The meeting finalized that the schools and universities will resume classes from next month and action will be taken against those who violate the decision.
The government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had proposed to reopen the educational institutions from September 1, which was opposed by all the participants, a spokesperson of Sindh education minister said.
The government had announced in July to resume educational activities in the country from September after reviewing the coronavirus situation.
Shafqat Mahmood had then said that the decision has been taken to allow schools to call its administration staff before September 15 and announced that training will be conducted to ensure that SOPs are implemented.
He said that provinces will be responsible for ensuring SOPs that are followed, cautioning schools to follow the procedures laid out by the government. “It is my request to private schools, especially, that the SOPs that you will have to follow will be the ones made by the government,” he said.
