The country is yet to get congenial atmosphere for resuming physical operation of educational institutions, said Primary and Mass Education Secretary Md Akram-al-Hossain.
He was addressing journalists at his office in the secretariat on Sunday.
“It is not appropriate time to open schools and resume academic activities physically. You (journalists) also know if educational institution should go for physical operation or not,” he said, hinting at corona prevalence in the country.
Opening schools will see rampant visit of the children and guardians putting the country in great danger, he said.
“We opened some schools which were shut again due to deterioration of corona situation. Should we take any decision compromising with safety of the children?”
About a proposal allowing respective educational institutions to hold Primary Education Certificate Examination, he said the file is pending with decision of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.
