The Cabinet of Ministers previously recommended that schools start the school year on September 1
More than 25,000 signatures have been collected on a petition calling for a ban on face-to-face teaching in all educational institutions in Ukraine until the end of martial law. This is reported on President’s website.
In the petition, its author, Maria Gorsheneva, made public six reasons why she tried to explain why it is impossible to start a full-time education, note “Audience“. Among them are the departure of a large part of the population abroad, the long duration of certain air alarms, as well as the lack of shelters and escape routes in many educational establishments.
According to the author, it is difficult to focus on education immediately after the air raids, and in the case of kindergartens and primary schools, the age of the pupils requires even more attention from the educators and teachers during emergency events, so the number of adults may not be enough.
Recall that the Cabinet of Ministers recommended that schools start the academic year on September 1, and universities – on August 15, with the exception of the first classes.
The head of the Ministry of Education, Serhiy Shkarlet, said that special commissions will be created under the regional military administrations in Ukraine to determine whether it is safe to start face-to-face teaching in local schools from the September 1st.
There will be no return to face-to-face training in the frontline areas: the online format will continue there. It will be the same in the occupied territories.
During the air raids, classes and classes in educational institutions will be interrupted and, if possible, will continue in shelters. The Department for Education says teachers in areas where offline learning will resume should return to work. Local self-government bodies should organize regular training on the evacuation of students to storage facilities and safety courses.
According to government data, as of June 19, 651,000 school-age children were outside Ukraine and 1,174 schools were under Russian occupation.
