Unclear future for schools costing parents more in Myanmar

The Education Department will not cancel the school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a senior official said.

Basic education schools and universities have been closed and have not been able to reopen in Myanmar due to COVID-19.

“We’ve been watching the situation carefully but haven’t decided to cancel the school year,” he said.

High schools reopened on July 21 but closed again after about a month due to an increasing number of COVID-19 cases.

The official said schools can reopen only when cases decrease and the situation stabilises.

Although the Ministry of Education has not announced it officially, high school students have to learn from home, for which parents pay extra. “I have to let my child take classes online. Even if there is no matriculation exam this year, it will be preparation for the coming year, so it will cost me more,” a parent said.
