LAHORE: The government decided to reopen schools in those districts which are badly affected by Covid-19. The reopening of schools raised concerns by teachers as it is not safe for students to open schools in these areas.
However, the attendance of students is low in these areas because the parents are worried about their children’s health.
Public and private universities also resume their activities all across the province.
Punjab Public Service Commission ( PPSC) also formally announced the dates of interviews and exams on Saturday. Earlier this month commission decided to postpone the test and interviews due to an increase in Covid cases in the provinces however after the NCOC press release the Commission announced the new dates for the test and interviews.
“Academic activities started as per the instructions of the government and we are trying our best to implement the SOPs. However, the government should think about the high-risk districts. It is our suggestion that the schools in those districts should be closed to avoid the risk to the students as well as teachers,”
Punjab Teachers Union (PTU) Secretary-General Rana Liaqat Ali while talking to the media apprised that educational activities are resumed in the schools according to government instructions.
