Sindh government takes important decision over closing of schools across the province

The Sindh government has decided not to reopen schools for classes 6, 7, and 8 from September 21, as scheduled.

The decision was taken in the wake of a surge in coronavirus cases across the province, said the Sindh Education Minister, Saeed Ghani on Friday. ------------------------------

Addressing a press conference in Karachi, the minister said that the resumption of formal education for the students of grades 6, 7, and 8 has been delayed by a week.

Our purpose is not to shut down schools permanently […] We simply seek for them to mend their ways when we see them not fulfilling their responsibility.

Ghani said that educational institutions should follow the guidelines and protocols:

It is not for our satisfaction, but for the children’s safety.

The provincial education minister emphasized that schools will reopen on September 28, depending on the improvement in the pandemic situation.
