Bangkok (VNA) –
Thailand’s Ministry of Education is going to test an on-air and online learning system, in case at-school teaching is not safe enough for the start of the new semester on July 1.

The ministry’s deputy spokesperson Rakana Tantawutho revealed that schools and education institutes under the ministry’s supervision will start the first semester from July 1 to November 13, and the second one from December 1 to April 10.

The ministry is preparing an appropriate method for the learning system during the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as adding more skill classes during the school breaks. 

The new curriculum will allow students to access education and stay safe at the same time.

It will also reduce assessments and cut unnecessary activities.

In addition, the ministry will conduct a survey of students, parents and teachers, in order to develop the right tools and a suitable schedule.

On May 11, Thailand recorded six more COVID-19 cases, raising its total infections to 3,015, including 56 deaths./.
