In a difficult "puzzle", is expected to evolve again opening of schools for the Government,as at this time, after epidemiological data, that there is a decision to reopen them on 30 November does not seem feasible and it may take time.
Both in Ministry of Education as well as in Health, there is concern, despite government officials insisting that the schools have a low epidemiological burden and will be in the first wave of activities, to be opened. In this context, next week (probably the 4calendar 23-27 of November), will take place the "smartly targeted tests" for the students Gymnasium and Lyceum, as previously announced from the floor of Parliament, the Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.
The results from their implementation, will assist, to make the final decision on the date,during which schools will eventually open. For the time being though,at least on the part of the Ministry of Education, there is no information about it in the manner and choice of students,who will do the tests. It is the intention of the government to open the schools on the pre-determined date but as they pointed out in ethnos.gr, Ministry of Education officials "At the moment and with the data we have, such a decision is difficult. We owe it to ourselves to listen to scientists. ".
The government spokesman Mr.. Stelios Petsas, however, he stated that "in the first phase, the schools of all educational levels after the lockdown to limit cases mockery,while catering and health stores will be nearing completion. In the intentions of Maximos is on 30 November to some measures are taken of lockdown, with students being the first to return to school. There is no way the schools will be closed until Fota. We will present the final plan to the citizens at the beginning of next week ".
In any case the prolonged closing of school units is a serious social problem with effects on both the learning function of students and their psychology. THE distance learning continues to progress with difficulty in many parts of the country, despite the efforts, made for system and infrastructure upgrade. At the same time thousands of families and especially in remote areas with difficulty can meet the needs of e-learning, as they do not have the necessary means or knowledge, so that effectively support their children.
