KARACHI:Sindh schools are not allowed to re-open before 15 September according to the Provincial Education Minister Saeed Ghani who said that action will be taken against these institutions including the cancellation of licenses.
The Education Minister instructed the Deputy Commissioners to issue notices to management of Sindh schools that re-open before the government’s approval.
According to Education Minister Saeed Ghani, the final decision to re-open educational institutions will be made by the National Command and Operation Center (NCOC) during the first week of September depending on the coronavirus situation.
However, Ghani says that the Sindh Government is prepared to re-open schools earlier if Federal Government orders them to do so since educational institutions have been issued standard operating procedures (SOPs).
It is pertinent to mention that schools in Pakistan have been closed since late March when the lockdown was imposed in the country to prevent and contain the spread of the coronavirus.
