Ruzic talks about return of students to schools: Indicator of improving epidemiological situation
He added that teachers are allowed to deviate from the program by up to 20 percent
The return of students to schools is an indicator that the epidemiological situation is improving, Minister of Education of Serbia Branko Ruzic said this morning.
He told RTS that it is important that no school year is lost and that there is continuity in education. The educational system showed resistance and the virus did not significantly enter schools, Ruzic stressed, reports Tanjug.
He said that there have been no more than 2-3 percent of infected employees and about one percent of students, but added that this does not mean that they became infected in schools or universities.
Ruzic stressed that vaccination is the only medicine to suppress the epidemic and defeat coronavirus.
"About 55,000 education workers have been vaccinated, which is slightly more than a third and that is a good indicator. I also invite, not only educators, but citizens from all age groups to get vaccinated," said Ruzic.
He added that teachers are allowed to deviate from the program by up to 20 percent, in order to focus on the most important things as they work with students.
