The government will formally announce the decision about reopening of schools and colleges, and holding exams amid the coronavirus outbreak “very soon”, Dipu Moni has said.
The education minister spoke about the plan with reporters after a programme at International Mother Language Institute in Dhaka on Tuesday.
She said she will take questions from the journalists at a news conference scheduled for Wednesday.
Dipu Moni has called the news conference to brief the public about the “overall situation” amid concerns of students and parents over the coronavirus outbreak.
She is expected to talk about whether to extend the shutdown of institutions beyond Oct 3 and when to hold the postponed HSC exams.
The educational institutions have been shut since Mar 17 when the government confirmed the first cases of COVID-19.
With the end of the year nearing, students and parents are worried how the promotions to the next classes will take place and what will happen to the lost lessons.by
