Demands to open educational institutions during periods of high infection are absolutely absurd: Education Minister

Minister of Education Dr. Dipu Moni said, the demand to open educational institutions during the period of high infection rate of Corona in the country is completely unreasonable. It is not possible in this situation. However, the decision regarding SSC and HSC examination will be announced soon.

He said these things while replying to various retrenchment proposals of opposition MPs during the process of passing the budget in Parliament on Wednesday.

The education minister said, we cannot continue in the global crisis corona epidemic by denying science. Science says it's not healthy to open schools until infection rates drop to 5 percent or less. Science does not agree. Now the infection rate is about 24 percent.

In some districts the infection rate is 50 percent or more. At this time, it is necessary to think whether the demand to open educational institutions is reasonable or not. Because this parliament takes decisions for the nation.

Developed countries of the world tried to open educational institutions at different times. After they opened, they were forced to close again after an increase in infections. Developed countries where class size is not more than 20/25 people. In many of our educational institutions, students sit side by side. The opening question there is absolutely unanswerable.

Most of the time I have to go out. Whenever I meet the parents of the students, I ask them. They told me that even if we open educational institutions now, we cannot send our boys and girls to danger.

Release the infection between classes. Science says the risk of withdrawal is higher in children. If a student is infected, he may not have any symptoms due to his age, but can spread to other family members including parents.

The educational life of students has been disrupted all over the world. Something happened to us here too. But I am keeping a close eye on them so that they do not suffer any long-term damage. He said that we take the decision after taking the advice of the National Advisory Committee on Covid-19.
