BANGKOK, June 14 (TNA) – Deputy Education Minister Khunying Kalaya Sophonpanich confirmed the new school term began for all students who could study through suitable channels and platforms and were safe from COVID-19.
Schools reopened in many provinces today with strict disease control measures. Many schools in the North had their students attend on-site classes alternately to prevent crowding.
Meanwhile, schools remained closed in Bangkok, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani and Samut Prakan that were declared dark red zones of maximum and strict COVID-19 control. Teachers were allowed to hold classes online or via satellite television only.
Khunying Kalaya said the Education Ministry gained experiences in all channels of educational services over the past two years and schools were sufficiently equipped to hold online classes and able to ensure safety for the students who studied on-site.
The government would finish COVID-19 vaccinations for all educational personnel in dark red zones as soon as possible, she said. (TNA)
