As many as 29,235 schools under the jurisdiction of the Office of Basic Education Commission (Obec) have opened up with different measures in place to curb the spread of Covid-19.

 

Taweesin Visanuyothin, spokesperson for the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), said on Monday (July 13) that nearly all schools and educational institutions in Thailand have reopened this month.

 

Of the 35,155 schools and institutions in total that have reopened so far, 4,103 are under the Office of the Private Education Commission, 889 under the Vocational Education Commission, 928 under the Office of the Non-Formal and Informal Education and 29,235 under Obec.

 

However, 158 international schools are still closed.

 

Of the 29,235 Obec schools, 24,703 are holding classes on campus, while the rest have put in place different measures, such as holding classes in campus on alternate days or having different groups of students go to school on different days, in order to curb infections.

Some friends of mine are teachers in government secondary schools. They now teach students in 2 groups. Group 1 Monday to Wednesday, Group 2 Thursday to Saturday. Consequently, they now work 6 days a week, not 5 as before, and only have one day off per week. They also have to do all the cleaning and sanitising of the classrooms themselves! For an increase in teaching hours of 20% plus cleaning duties, they receive no extra pay! I can't see the teachers unions in UK standing for that!

clearly more than 20 students in the picture

Clearly a large sized classroom that can accommodate more children and still maintain adequate spacing.
