COVID-19: Nigerian govt Discloses Parents Position on School Re-Opening

COVID-19: Nigerian govt Discloses Parents Position on School Re-Opening

The federal government has revealed that 80 percent of parents have kicked against the reopening of schools.

This was stated by the Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba while speaking at Thursday’s briefing of the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 in Abuja.

According to him, a survey showed that most parents are opposed to schools reopening at the moment, as they don’t want their children to be used as an experiment.

“We are keeping the children at home because you can’t see coronavirus with your naked eyes and can’t know if a child is asymptomatic or carrying the virus. If he does, and he goes back and infects another person, there is no way for us to know.

“Prior to that, the ministry carried out a perception survey around the country and 80 percent of the responses were assurances from parents that they’re not willing to experiment with their children. If there are parents willing to experiment – to check whether it can work or not, we can invite them to a test,” Nwajiuba said.
