UK Education Minister backtracks and announces Schools will NOT uniformly open across the country in June

Share

Boris Johnson’s government suffered another defeat when the Education Minister admitted that schools in the UK will NOT all be opening together and at the same time.

Parents have taken to social media in their thousands against the return to schools proposed by the government for June 1. Teachers themselves have demonstrated huge misgivings around the decision with 1,500 schools already put on notice NOT to open.

The prime minister Boris Johnson had said that schools in England will partially reopen next month, with pupils in nursery, reception, and years one and six the first to go back.

Although the number of coronavirus deaths appear to slowly be reducing, the UK has still seen more deaths than any other European nation since the outbreak of the global pandemic. Three councils across England have already announced that they will not be reopening schools on Monday, June 1, with many councils still yet to announce their plans.
