COVID-19: Parents fearful of sending their children back to school

[Conservative] Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has sought to reassure parents and teachers over the government’s plans to reopen schools, but many are worried.

Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:

[‘Moderate’ christian trade union] CNV Education conducted a poll showing that 49 percent of the 7,000 members who responded would prefer not to see primary education opening up fully until the summer.

“The practical consequences must therefore be carefully considered and discussed”, says chairman Jan de Vries. “Eg, Wash hands with 30 children six times a day. How much can you ask from the teaching staff?”

Keeping a distance of one and a half meters between students in secondary schools is also quite a job, De Vries fears. “Nobody should be asked to do the impossible.”

‘No return under unsafe conditions’ say South African teachers: here.
