Lahore, 21st July 2020: The All Pakistan Private School Association has announced that it will reopen schools across the country from the 15th of August.
According to reports of Baaghi TV, in a press conference on Monday, the association chairperson said that the schools can no longer bear their expenses and if they remained closed for more they are likely to get closed down.
He also warned that if the government does not let them open schools they will stage a protest and start a long march to Islamabad.
“The date given by the government to reopen schools is too late,” the chairperson said, adding that the losses faced by students and teachers were getting worse with each passing day.
The association has ensured to follow the SOPs strictly.
There is a steady decrease in the coronavirus patients in Pakistan and it is time now that the school across the country should reopen, said the chairperson.
Earlier, in July Shafqat Mahmood said, “At the end of August, we’ll review the situation and decide on the matter, schools are allowed to open their offices.”
The minister said that all schools will be opened in stages, the students of higher classes will be called first and then the junior students if the things go smoothly. However, the decision may be withdrawn if the virus outbreak worsens.
