Prayut says kids must study online until pandemic eases


Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has emphasised that students must study online until the Covid-19 situation improves and schools can reopen, government spokesperson Narumon Pinyosinwat said on Monday (May 18).

She added the government was trying to address problems of accessibility and affordability of teaching materials, parental care, and responsibility of learners.
“Initially, we will focus on reducing study time in the classroom, parents’ readiness, and relieving the burden of sending children to school, which will also help to reduce traffic congestion,” she said.
“Meanwhile, we urge education-related authorities to secure people’s cooperation until the Covid-19 outbreak is resolved.”
