The Private Schools Association of Karachi has demanded that it should be allowed to reopen schools after Eid.

In a media briefing on Tuesday, the association’s president, Tariq Shah, said that now that everything else in the country was resuming, schools should also be granted permission to reopen amid SOPs.

“We appeal to the chief justice that a suo moto action should be taken concerning the opening of schools,” he said.

“According to an international study, students between the age of one to 17 are less likely to catch the virus because of their strong immunity,” Shah said, emphasising that there was no point in keeping schools closed as the prime minister has also said that residents now have to live with the virus.

He added that it will be easy to supervise children as they will divide the students in each class into half. “When students enter the school, they will be screened for fever, will be provided gloves and sanitisers.”

Schools and educational institutions were closed across the country as a precautionary measure against the novel coronavirus in late February.

    Are they in senses. I will not send my children to school just yet especially in June.
    I agree with federal to keep school closed till 15 July.

    How will you ensure social distancing in school vans, classrooms and at hometime? Schools are being forced to reduce fee, how can they spend on making arrangements to follow the SOPs?
    I agree that the kids might not be affected by the virus but they can be carriers. And will end up infecting an elderly person at home who has an underlying condition.

    This is a totally illogical demand. ALLAH na karay if anything happens, who will be responsible for it.
    It’s ok children are considered safe for covid, but in countries like China and Japan. Not even in USA.
    Please note being a doctor I can say that children under the above said age group are more prone to catching infections, due to poor immunity.
    If any thing happens, who will be held responsible for it, are the school authorities ready to pay the penalties to government and parents.
    I fail to understand is it a business or education, first get yourself educated enough to face the crises.

    I think rural children will be safer in schools than at home. Because all the children in the schools will be in the eyes of the teachers. As a teacher, I want to say that schools should reopen with all SOP measures. First of all, Pakistan’s education is already weak. And long-term closure of educational institutions could further weaken our education. We request our Minister of Education to resume education with all precautionary measures. Thanks

    Schools should be open because there are thousands of teachers who are working in private schools they have only source of income to teaching in schools. As far as social distancing is concern schools can follow sops far better than other institutions.
